NCAAF Football Championship 2017
Nebraska vs Oregon
Date:Saturday, September 9
Time: 4.30 PM ET
(At the moment, there’s no deal to simulcast the three USU games on one of Sinclair’s Utah stations, but local programmers are talking to Stadium about that possibility. Stay tuned …)
This means that USU fans who live, well, anywhere, will be able to see the Aggies if you can get on Facebook. Just go to
The Facebook games will have a Facebook feel, of course. We’re promised “live curated chat experiences” with “well-known and well-respected football personalities”; a “social production team and correspondents working the sidelines” that will “engage” the audience “in conversation”; and an “ongoing integration of real-time social elements provided by the competing schools.”
If it’s just fans from the two schools insulting each other, let’s hope there’s an easy and obvious way to mute all that.
ESPN still loves BYU
For those of you who think ESPN doesn’t love BYU, (1) ESPN picked up the 2019 option year on its BYU football contract; (2) ESPN put together the LSU-BYU game that was supposed to be in Houston on Saturday; and (3) ESPN quickly moved the game to New Orleans because of the flooding in Texas.
Yes, that was clearly in ESPN’s self-interest. But, just as clearly, ESPN execs believe being in business with BYU is in their best interest.
Covering television for 27 years has made me skeptical — some would say cynical — about TV executives’ motives. But in the case of the Robert Lee “controversy” at ESPN, I’m siding with ESPN president John Skipper.
