Pat McAfee to Debut Alternative College Football Telecast



Saying there is no end in sight to the Pat McAfee’s media empire is an understatement at this point. And that’s crystal clear based on what McAfee and his team are kicking off tonight.

In partnership with Omaha Productions, McAfee will host his own alternative college football telecast that will air on ESPN2. The first of six such broadcasts will cover Clemson and North Carolina State’s battle of ranked ACC teams this evening.

McAfee discussed this latest project earlier this week on his show – The Pat McAfee Show that airs daily to millions of viewers on his YouTube channel. He’s referring to these shows by using the social media hashtag of #CFBPrimeTimeWithThePMS.

These McAfee-led telecasts are expected to feature donations, giveaways, and “electricity from start to finish.” Anyone who has been following McAfee and his media journey knows all too well that these shows will likely be unconventional and not just the regular style of how games are covered.

For starters, McAfee is letting his pick be known, selecting the Wolfpack to complete the upset during ESPN’s College GameDay this morning.
