ESPN is going all out for Monday night’s College Football Playoff National Championship between Alabama and Georgia. For the eighth consecutive, ESPN is putting a together a MegaCast for the national title game.

The MegaCast features 13 presentations, detailed in ESPN’s announcement:

Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit will call their eighth CFP National Championship together, celebrating the close of their 26th college football season as a commentating team. Reporters Holly Rowe (Alabama) and Molly McGrath (Georgia) will provide news and insight from the sidelines, as McGrath makes her CFP National Championship debut and Rowe covers her first for the main ESPN telecast after reporting on the ESPN Radio broadcast for the first six years of the championship.

ESPN rules analyst Bill Lemonnier will also cover Championship Monday. The former Big Ten referee is a veteran of several marquee assignments, including a number of prestigious bowl games.

ESPN’s MegaCast production includes five additional presentations across its television networks, six more offerings available on the ESPN App and a 4K feed.

Fan-favorite Film Room returns to the National Championship MegaCast, set for ESPN2. In a new twist this year, Texas A&M’s coaching staff are the stars of this MegaCast offering, with head coach Jimbo Fisher and his crew providing insight and analysis alongside ESPN college football analyst Dusty Dvoracek. The Aggies defeated top-ranked Alabama earlier in the season, with Fisher becoming the first Saban assistant to take down his mentor and former boss. Fisher is one of four active FBS coaches to win a national championship, having captured the 2013 BCS national championship with Florida State.

Command Center on ESPNU features a multi-angle presentation, which includes up to four different vantage points at any one time, with statistics and real-time drive charts supplementing the game action.

MegaCast mainstay AT&T 5G SkyCast moves to ESPNEWS this year, with Anish Shroff and Kelly Stouffer providing commentary and context out of commercial breaks before throwing back to the sounds of the game. The popular view from above the action and behind the offense on most plays will also have replays shown regularly throughout the presentation. Additionally, the Skycam viewing option will also be available in 4K on Comcast, DirecTV, YouTube TV and Verizon.

The Spanish-language telecast (ESPN Deportes) and Hometown Radio (SEC Network and the ESPN App) remain staples of the MegaCast, with the All-22 viewing angle and AT&T High SkyCast also available digitally.

  • Hometown Radio (SEC Network and ESPN App)
    Fans can listen to the local radio broadcast of each team, with their audio feed synced up with ESPN’s presentation. This MegaCast feed is made possible in conjunction with Alabama Crimson Tide Sports Network Powered by LEARFIELD and the Georgia Bulldog Sports Network. SEC Network will carry the Alabama feed in the first half and the Georgia feed in the second half, with both radio broadcasts available in full on the ESPN App.

    • Alabama (SEC Network & ESPN App):  Eli Gold, John Parker Wilson and Rashad Johnson
    • Georgia (SEC Network & ESPN App): Scott Howard, Eric Zeier and DJ Shockley
  • All-22 (ESPN App)
    Watch the game the same way players and coaches study film, with a vantage point high above the field of play. The angle allows for the 22 players on the field to be seen at all times, providing the ability to distinguish how plays develop. Commentary will be provided by the ESPN Radio broadcast.

Sean McDonough calls his sixth CFP National Championship on ESPN Radio, joining analyst Todd Blackledge, who has called the CFP National Championship all eight years on the platform. Lead ESPN Radio reporter Ian Fitzsimmons and ABC/ESPN reporter Kris Budden will have the call from the sidelines of Lucas Oil Stadium, with ESPN officiating analyst and former longtime SEC referee Matt Austin contributing to the commentary. The radio broadcast is available throughout the country on more than 400 ESPN Radio stations, the ESPN App, ESPNRadio.com, SiriusXM, Apple Music, iHeartRadio and TuneIn.

The Spanish-language call of the game will be available on ESPN Deportes, with Eduardo Varela, Pablo Viruega and Rebeca Landa announcing the action.


New in 2021, the halftime marching band performances at the College Football Playoff National Championship will be available on the ESPN App. The sights and sounds of Alabama’s Million Dollar Band and Georgia’s Redcoat Marching Band will be streaming live via the All-22 view.

Monday night’s game is set for 8 p.m. ET from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
