HOW TO WATCH: College Football National Championship

No matter how you want to watch, ESPN’s Megacast has got you covered

NCAA Football: CFP Championship-SoFi Stadium Views Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight the Georgia Bulldogs take on the TCU Horned Frogs for the national championship (and boy is that still hard to believe). It’s the last college football game of the 2022 season, so savor every bit of it before we enter the drudgery of the offseason. Luckily, tonight’s game gets ESPN Megacast treatment, so you have no shortage of ways to take in this last bit of college football bliss. The broadcast will utilize approximately 100 cameras and 100 microphones, providing every angle of college football’s biggest night, including:

  • AllCam capturing the entire field, allowing isolated shots on any player and activity on the field at all times.
  • Pylon Cameras at each corner of the end zone, with the back line pylons now having ability to pan, tilt and zoom – covering more of the end zone than ever before.
  • Skycam showcasing the action from above the field.
  • On-the-field views via cameras atop the caps of the officials.
  • Line-to-Gain with the pylon cam at the first down line (low angle), which was crucial in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.
  • Virtual reality graphics that span across the entire field and appear via multiple cameras at the same time.
  • Dedicated coach cameras on TCU head coach Sonny Dykes and Georgia head coach Kirby Smart at all times.
