ESPN’s Spring Football Coverage Kicks Off with 70+ Hours of Programming

  • USC, Georgia and Jackson State Spring Games Set for ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU, respectively
  • Pro Days Programming on SEC Network and ACC Network

ESPN networks are set for a full slate of spring football beginning in mid-March, as spring games and Pro Days dominate the college football landscape throughout March and April.

Spring game action begins with Georgia Tech’s White & Gold Game on Thursday, March 17 on ACC Network, one of nearly three dozen team exhibitions scheduled across ESPN platforms over the next six weeks.

Coming off the College Football Playoff National Championship, Georgia will participate in their annual G-Day activities on Saturday, April 16 at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN2. The Bulldogs will also have their Pro Day televised by SEC Network on Wednesday, March 16 at 10 a.m.

Georgia’s Pro Day is one of several airing across ESPN networks this spring. Pro Days from Ole Miss and Alabama are set for the following two Wednesdays in March on SECN, with additional pre-NFL Draft coverage from Pro Days at Clemson, Pittsburgh and UNC on ACC Network. Pro Day events typically include weight room weigh-ins, bench press, vertical jump and broad jump, as well as the 40-yard dash, 60-yard shuttle and position workouts for players entering the NFL Draft.

ESPN and ESPNU will also feature live spring game action, as Lincoln Riley’s first USC Football Spring Showcase will air on ESPN at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 23. Closing out college football’s spring season on ESPN networks, Jackson State’s Blue & White Spring Game is set for Sunday, April 24 on ESPNU.
