Eight games will be aired on ESPN’s digital platform ESPN3 in the following season. All three postseason teams from a year ago will have at least two games aired, and every team will be featured at least once. Two “wildcard” selections have yet to be chosen.
This marks the second-straight season the league has produced the Game of the Week package in conjunction with WebStream Sports. WebStream Sports, an Indianapolis-based company which is a proven leader in video production, streaming video and content creation. The company, founded in 2006, produces more than 1,000 events annually and has also served as a web streaming consultant for the OVC for the past year.
Kevin Ingram, host of “The Wake Up Zone” on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, will handle play-by-play duties while Bob Belvin, on-air talent and contributor at 100.7 FM/AM 540 (ESPN Clarksville), will provide analysis. The duo has worked together each of the past two years in the league’s TV package.
The OVC Football Game of the Week package is part of a five-year agreement with ESPN which was announced last October. The deal runs through the completion of the 2017-18 season.
