In addition to broadcasting the NCAA College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday at 8pm et/ 5pm pt, TSN is once again bringing back bonus Megacast coverage of the big game.
The traditional game telecast will air across the TSN Network with alternate coverage across TSN2 and TSN GO.
A complete rundown of the bonus Megacast content can be found below:
THE FILM ROOM
ESPN analysts Brian Griese and Chris Spielman, along with Florida head coach Jim McElwain and other additional guests, will provide in-depth analysis of the game as it happens from a film room equipped with multiple camera angles, clicker technology and telestration at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn., headquarters.
Live from Los Angeles, personalities watch the Crimson Tide-Tigers matchup unfold in a living room-type atmosphere. Participants include Teddy Atlas, Michelle Beadle, Jay Bilas, Taylor Twellman and Marcellus Wiley. Additional guests could be added.
An alternate version of the traditional game telecast -- Joe Tessitore will host the interplay between Clemson’s all-time leading passer Tajh Boyd and former Alabama center and three-time national champion Barrett Jones as they serve as quasi-‘game analysts’ with a decidedly partisan view towards their alma maters. Other partisan guests and ESPN personalities will join the commentary which will be conducted primarily from field level.
FINEBAUM FILM ROOM
Paul Finebaum and his in-studio guests – SEC Network analysts Greg McElroy, and Booger McFarland and Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema – will watch the game and provide their instant analysis and reaction. The show, which will be produced at a location near University of Phoenix Stadium, will also take live calls throughout the game and fans can interact by tagging their tweets with #FinebaumFilmRoom.
SOUNDS OF THE GAME
The game telecast -- sans commentators -- will be amplified with dozens of microphones positioned throughout the stadium in addition to the public address announcer and referee calls to recreate the in-stadium fan experience of being seated at the game. This will include full coverage of the pregame on-field entertainment and halftime band performances.
