Who Are the Sugar Bowl Announcers on ESPN? Everything You Need To Know About the Broadcast

    The Sugar Bowl immediately follows the Rose Bowl as the two College Football Playoff semifinals go back-to-back on ESPN. Who is calling the Sugar Bowl?

    The 2024 Allstate Sugar Bowl features two of the nation’s most polarizing teams from the 2023 college football season. The Texas Longhorns face the Washington Huskies as the No. 3 and No. 2 seeds in the College Football Playoffs, respectively.

    Which broadcasts can you watch the game and who will be on the call for the action on Monday?

    When Does ESPN’s Coverage Start?

    ESPN’s day-long coverage of the College Football Playoffs technically started at 10:00 a.m. ET when College GameDay aired. However, the Allstate Sugar Bowl live action is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. ET with ESPN’s College Football Bowl game Pre/Post Studio show.

    That coverage will begin at 8:30 or immediately following the 2023 Rose Bowl Game broadcast, aired just before the Sugar Bowl. There will be a multitude of channels to watch the action from New Orleans:

    • ESPN – Standard broadcast
    • ESPN2 – Field Pass with The Pat McAfee Show
    • ESPNU – Command Center
    • ESPNews – Skycast

    The Longhorns didn’t have to travel far, not nearly as far as any of the other College Football Playoff members, and are expected to take the field at the Caesars Superdome with a home-game atmosphere.

    The scenes on Bourbon Street the night before the game were heavily covered in Burnt Orange, and the Longhorns will even have their live mascot Bevo in attendance.
