ESPN Saturday Night Football on ABC is a weekly presentation of college football on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC). Games are presented each Saturday night during the regular season portion of the college football season with two exceptions, both for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races (this will end after 2014, when NBC Sports Group replaces ESPN/ABC as a NASCAR broadcaster). Premiering on September 2, 2006, the program features prime time college football games starting at 8:00 p.m. ET. The current presenting sponsor for Saturday Night Football is Windows 8.

The primary broadcast team includes play by play announcer Chris Fowler and analyst Kirk Herbstreit, with Heather Cox as sideline reporter. John Saunders, Mack Brown and Danny Kanell host the studio halftime show, as well as brief pregame and postgame shows. Other ESPN broadcast teams may also occasionally appear for regional telecasts.

Overview[edit]

While ABC and ESPN have aired college football games on Saturday nights for decades, this program marks the first time that a collegiate sporting program has officially been part of any major over-the-air network's primetime schedule.

Twelve weeks of games were televised during the 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2010 college football seasons during the three-month periods, with the Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship Game closing out the seasons each year. With the college football season longer by a week, thirteen weeks of games were televised for the 2008, closing with the 2008 Big 12 Championship Game on December 6, 2008. The Cowboys Classic became the opening game for Saturday Night Football beginning in 2009. The 2011 season had 12 weeks of games. In 2013, however, the opening game for Saturday Night Football was Georgia vs Clemson.

Besides Pac-12 and Big Ten games, ABC makes most of its selections or its options 12 days prior to the game (with some made six days beforehand). This allows ABC to 'flex' the most compelling game it has the rights to broadcast into the Saturday Night Football slot. Thus the Saturday night game is usually ABC's game of the week.

Saturday Night Football uses a variation of ABC's decades-old college football theme music (this variation originated from ABC broadcasts of bowl games starting in 1998, and was updated in 2010 along with the rest of ESPN and ABC's college football music), while all other college football broadcasts on ABC and ESPN use the ESPN college football theme music. Saturday Night Football's theme music was updated again in 2012 and the following year (2013), it was implemented on all of the college football broadcasts across the ESPN networks (including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ABC). ESPN also uses ABC's college football theme music for its BCS game coverage.
