Heading into Week 10 of the college football season, there’s a lot on the line for both the players and the fans. ESPN enlisted singer songwriter Billie Eilish and an exclusive remix of her hit song “you should see me in a crown” to accompany some of the key teams and plays of the season in a new video from ESPN. The video previews the emotion and drama to come in the final weeks of the season as teams vie for a place in the College Football Playoff.
