NCAA Outdoor Championships Take to the Track on ESPN and ESPN2

The 2018 NCAA Men’s & Women’s Track & Field Outdoor Championships take center stage with primetime coverage on ESPN and ESPN2 beginning Wednesday, June 6. The championships mark one of the final events at Historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. before the facility undergoes major renovations over the next few years.

Longtime ESPN track & field commentator and two-time Olympic high jump bronze medalist Dwight Stones teams up in the announcing booth with Olympic decathlon gold medalist Dan O’Brien, while SportsCenter anchor John Anderson and veteran track & field broadcaster Jill Montgomery will handle reporting duties throughout the championships. O’Brien made his debut on ESPN’s NCAA track & field coverage in March at the NCAA Indoor Championships.

Championship action begins with the decathlon Wednesday at 3:20 p.m. ET on ESPN3 and continues through Saturday, June 9. Field events have their own dedicated streams on ESPN3 in addition to highlights throughout the telecast windows. All of ESPN’s coverage of the championships can be streamed on the ESPN App via connected devices.

ESPN is the home of 24 NCAA Championships, with the NCAA Men’s & Women’s Track & Field Outdoor Championships two of the final championships of the 2017-18 college sports season.
