ESPNU Road Trip, a 30-minute series that taps into the college football tradition, rivalry and revelry on college campuses across the nation, has announced sites for the 2010 season. The show typically airs Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU, following the Saturday game featured in the series that week.
This season Road Trip will canvas 11 campuses targeting the most appealing game of the weekend. While sites have been determined for the first seven weeks, games will be selected in the last four weeks based on relevancy to the national scene.
Jonathan Drubner and new co-host Marianela Pereyra will host the series. In addition to the 30-minute episodes, Drubner and Pereyra can be seen on ESPN.com’s Road Trip webisodes.
The duo will seek out crowds of fans to give viewers an up-close look at the pageantry surrounding each game, including band and cheerleader performances and tailgate parties. The show also focuses on the local area and will feature favorite dining establishments and popular hangouts. Road Trip will look to integrate students and the game’s players with as much access as possible to help further illustrate culture and traditions on campus.
