MEGACAST SYNERGIES #BRANDS

ESPN is just dicking off at this point. They are doing something with this game across ALL of their platforms. It's emblazoned the ESPN MEGACAST. If for some ADD-riddled reason the actual broadcast on ESPN isn't enough - they have you covered:

  • ESPN2 | Film Room. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen, Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi, and Nebraska coach Mike Riley will be breaking down game film as it happens.
  • ESPNU | ESPN Voices. Oh man. This is bad. Need some blowhardy taeks from people long on ego and short on college football knowledge? ESPNU has you covered! Jay Bilas, Aaron Boone, Barry Melrose, Mark Schlereth, and Michael Wilbon will be discussing the game. For your enjoyment. No, really. Someone thinks this is a GREAT idea.
  • ESPNEWS | Off the Ball. Matt Millen! Jason Sehorn! Amani Toomer! MOAR TAEKSSSSSSSSS.
  • ESPN Classic | Sounds of the Game. BEST IDEA YET. 100 mics bring you all the sounds of the actual game without ANY analysis. This is how Ralph Waldo Emerson watches football.
  • a bunch of other stuff on espn.com.
And of course, our favorite got damn people on earth - the GBH Commentariat - this is your Game Thread. Crack wise, give taeks, and dish GIFS.

Enjoy the final night of the football season. By God, the Texas Aggies will play in one of these things in your lifetime.
