College football’s national championship game is tonight.

It airs on ESPN.

That’s the straight ahead broadcast as we know it.

You can get what’s called the film room version, with multiple camera angles, clicker technology and telestration on ESPN2.

The Homers telecast, with commentary by partisans from each school is on ESPNU

Sounds of the game, the regular feed minus the commentators but with ambient field and crowd sound is on ESPN Classic

Spanish language is on ESPN Deportes.

The mock replay booth is on ESPN3 as is the Pylon cam, which is exactly what it sounds like.

You can also find the Taco Bell Student section on ESPN3 cameras featuring students, bands, mascots and cheerleaders from each team

In all 14 ways to watch, in no small part because ESPN paid more than five and a half billion dollars for a 12 year deal to get the college football playoffs.
