ESPN Takes Another Stab at College Football App

As college football fans get ready for their preferred season of sporting excitement, ESPN is rolling out a new mobile offering that should help make the upcoming season exponentially more enjoyable.

This week, ESPN announced that its college football app for iOS and Android has been refreshed. It is now available at the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Redesigned from the ground up for both Android and iOS, including an iPad-optimized version, the app will provide fans with unprecedented coverage of the biggest stories in college football and breaking news for all Football Bowl Series teams.

Based on ESPN’s description, the app is designed to be the ultimate game day companion with “up-to-the-minute video clip highlights” of action from the gridiron, scoreboards, and the ability to enjoy games on WatchESPN.

The app will also prepare, engage and recap college football fans year-round with enhanced content, including news, video and alerts for all 124 FBS schools.

“We think the responsiveness and in-progress elements of the app will deliver a unique and indispensable game day experience for college football fans,” says Jay Lee, Senior Director of Product Development for ESPN Digital Media. “We’ve also combined the unmatched depth of ESPN’s college football content across platforms with highly customizable features to keep fans informed and engaged 24/7 year-round, not just on game days.”
