New tunes featured on ESPN's college football music package
Sorry Fall Out Boy fans, but “Centuries” will no longer be played on endless repeat during ESPN televised college football games in 2016.
Instead, you’ll become very familiar with X Ambassadors and Tom Morello’s “Collider,” which has been selected as the soundtrack of ESPN’s season-long college football marketing campaign.
“This music partnership with Interscope truly benefits both parties,” said ESPN music director Kevin Wilson. “It allows college football and the artists to reach each other’s fans in a very organic way. It has been said before, and still rings true: music and sports are continuously intertwined.”
After performing together at Lollapalooza in Chicago in July, X Ambassadors and Tom Morello released the “Collider” video ESPN will utilize throughout the season.

“We are beyond excited to continue the ESPN/Interscope relationship for a second straight college football season,” said Steve Berman, Vice Chairman Interscope Geffen A&M Records. “ESPN has created some incredible moments for our artists’ music and it’s the perfect place and audience to showcase the diversity of our roster.”
College football fans can also expect to hear music from other top artists including Aloe Blacc, Band of Horses, Dierks Bentley, DJ Snake, Fergie, J Balvin, Jamie N Commons, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, OneRepublic, SchoolboyQ, Selena Gomez, Mike Snow, The Band Perry, The Struts, Zedd, and many more throughout the 2016 campaign.
