sun belt espn 9/16

JMU graduate running back Percy Agyei-Obese celebrates one of his two touchdowns with graduate transfer quarterback Todd Centeio versus Norfolk State on Sept. 10. The Dukes begin conference play under a bigger spotlight next Saturday, in large part because of the success of the Sun Belt Conference through two weeks and the increased coverage ESPN brings. 

When it comes to college football coverage, it doesn’t get bigger than ESPN.

The cable network turned self-proclaimed “Worldwide Leader in Sports” has been the standard for showcasing college football for decades. Not only do they hold the rights to cover four of the five Power 5 conferences but thanks to shows like College GameDay and College Football Final, ESPN has maintained its influence over college football and how many perceive it. If a school gets picked to host College GameDay or a player gets a helmet sticker on College Football Final, it’s a big deal.
