8/30: ABC / ESPN College Football Coverage Map
***For ABC week one regional maps for 2009 please click here
The 2008-2009 College Football season starts Thursday and today ESPN is finalizing preparations for the weekend’s festivities. As with seasons past, ESPN is utilizing a “reverse mirror,” wherein they broadcast a different game on a different ESPN network, depending on the region. This changes the network on which a number of games will be aired, and in order to make sure we know where to find the games, ESPN emails us a detailed map of which games are on in regions around the US.
For Saturday, August 30th ESPN will be reverse mirroring
both the 3:30 PM game and the 8:00 PM game. The color coded maps below show which game will be aired on ABC during each time. If the game is not on ABC in your market, it will be aired live on ESPN 2.
UPDATE 8/28: The 8 PM game will NOT be a reverse mirror. ABC will blacking out games according to market. See the Clarification Post
UPDATE 8/29: ABC 7 Chicago WILL be carrying the MSU vs Cal game on ABC 7 in Chicago. Apparently the network made the change yesterday and will now be carrying both games. Here’s the full story from ABC7Chicago.com. Maybe network execs there are devout followers of HDSportsGuide and saw the discontent amongst the HD College Football Community? We’d like to think so. Enjoy the MSU game, Chicagoland.
