Default college tv football coverage

anybody got feedback on the Espn college pass v Eversports (which i think was new last year)guess the Espn app is better, seems to be more on it live plus 3 live news channels but any thoughts welcome as i cannot get Bt sport.I know Eurosport carried some games a couple of seasons back but do they still do it keep wondering why Premier sports who show the NHL do not try for some fixtures, as the knock on effect from the NFL for legal streams of college football would i am sure get an audience,this was how i started watching in the
days of Espn America

Not tried either as I've had tv coverage on NASN, ESPN, BT etc. Interested to know whether the games shown live here on BT/ESPN are subject to blackout similar to NFL Gamepass? There were posts on here last year with info, but they seem to have been removed.

Looking forward to the start of the season...

The first game is next weekend. An unusual start, one week earlier than normal, with just one game due to it's location. Hawai'i vs. California in Sydney, Australia. It's in the EPG on BT/ESPN - live coverage from 3am UK late Fri.(26th)/early Sat. morning.

The season then gets under way from Thur. 1st Sept. Cal. have that week off, no doubt to get over the jet lag, but Hawai'i play at Michigan as part of a 13 game season, which they often play compared to most team's 12. I think I read somewhere Hawai'i will fly 40,000 miles this year.

The opening week is Thur. 1, Fri. 2, Sat. 3, Sun. 4 and Mon. 5 Sept. as CFB usually has a game on Sun. and Mon. for one week only before the NFL starts.

There are some cracking matchups between top teams in week 1, possibly one of the best opening weeks ever in CFB, including the first ever FBS game at Lambeau Field... Wisconsin vs. LSU. I've not seen the BT/ESPN tv schedule yet - anyone have any info?

In week 2 there is a game at Bristol Motor Speedway, the NASCAR venue, with a capacity of 150,000 - Virginia Tech. vs. Tennessee. Sounds a bit like the outdoor NHL games venture.

No Blackouts at all if it's on ESPN it's on player live except for the CBS SEC game of the week at 8.30 on Saturday nights.
