espn-college football playoff-megacast

The College Football Playoff is the largest, most popular event on ESPN’s calendar, and as usual the network is treating it as such.

On Thursday, ESPN announced plans for its College Football Playoff semifinals MegaCast, and the menu is as thorough as ever, with 11 different feeds. Here’s a quick rundown:

All feeds will be available through the ESPN App.

In a welcome innovation, ESPN will place cameras inside first-down markers, which should provide clarity in case of a controversial first-down call, a la J.T. Barrett during the 2016 Ohio State-Michigan game. Overall, ESPN will have 50 cameras at the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl, including in locker rooms and in all eight pylons.

The College Football Playoff semifinals will take place January 1st, with the national title game arriving a week later.
