For the second consecutive year, ESPN will document a top college football program as it prepares for the upcoming season. College Football Special: Oklahoma All-Access will showcase the projected No. 1 Oklahoma Sooners in two 30-minute shows (Tuesday, Aug. 23), four 30-minute shows on ESPNU (August 15-19) and as a five-part series on College Football Live, SportsCenter and additional ESPN platforms (August 15-19).
Last year, ESPN spotlighted the defending BCS National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide.
Oklahoma will provide ESPN with extensive behind-the-scenes access into the inner workings of a college football program by giving viewers an inside look at practices, team meetings and activities, and campus facilities for seven days, beginning Wednesday, Aug. 3.
ESPN will air Oklahoma All-Access as two 30-minute episodes Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m. ET and 7:30 p.m. In addition, ESPNU will televise four 30-minute original Oklahoma All-Access programs Monday, Aug. 15; Tuesday, Aug. 16; Thursday, Aug. 18; and Friday, Aug. 19, all at 5:30 p.m. A five-part series featuring excerpts from the access will be televised on College Football Live, SportsCenter and additional studio programs August 15-19.
Each episode will be presented in the players’ and coaches’ own words as Oklahoma begins its season and what it hopes will be a quest for a national championship. ESPN will go behind-the-scenes to take fans inside the Sooners, both on and off the field. In 2010, head coach Bob Stoops led Oklahoma to a Big 12 Conference title with a 12-2 record, concluding with a 48-20 victory over Connecticut in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
ESPN has offered viewers similar all-access type segments within SportsCenter, College GameDay Built by The Home Depot, College Football Live and other ESPN shows.
