College Football 2012 on National Radio- Week 1

It's time folks. College Football is back on the radio, and with it comes the weekly national schedule updates. Here's the Week 1 plans from the 6 major providers. I realize I missed the Thursday Game. I will attempt to usually have this posted on Wednesday, but Touchdown radio had to choose another game after Compass Media took Miami/ Boston College from Touchdown Radio's hands. As a bonus this year, I will try and list the play-by-play teams for each game. Look forward to next week's listings.

ESPN Radio finally announcs college football schedule

Yesterday ESPN Media Zone released more than 450 games that will be televised on the ESPN Family this year. Included on the list was most of the ESPN Radio schedule for 2012-13. Remember this is the first year that every USC home game will be available on ESPN Radio and However they will have their own separate broadcast team from the previously announced returning team of Bill Rosinski, David Norrie, and Joe Schad. Due to time conflicts, not all games will be available on every ESPN Radio affiliate. Check your local listings to see which game, if any, will be carried in your area.
