ESPN Rolls Out Unprecedented College Softball Schedule

More than 80 Regular-Season Games; Five Conference Championship Games

ESPN will offer an unprecedented college softball lineup this season with more than 80 regular-season games scheduled across its networks. ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPNEWS will combine to televise more than 40 games, including the entire SEC tournament and the ACC, American, SWAC, and Big South championship games. In addition, ESPN3 will carry more than 40 exclusive regular-season games to be announced at a later date. The television schedule begins with preseason No. 1 Tennessee hosting South Carolina on Sunday, March 23, at 2:30 p.m. on ESPNU.

Once the regular season concludes, ESPN's coverage will continue with regional round coverage and every pitch of the super regionals and the NCAA Women's College World Series.

Additional television highlights:

· A record 17 matchups featuring two ranked teams will air on an ESPN network including No. 10 Texas at No. 2 Oklahoma on Thursday, April 17, on ESPN2. The defending National Champion Oklahoma Sooners will also play at No.16 Baylor on Saturday, April 12, on ESPN

ESPN offers a deep roster of softball analysts. Each analyst - Jessica Mendoza, Jennie Finch, Amanda Scarborough, Cheri Kempf and Michele Smith -- was named a collegiate All-American multiple times. Additionally, Finch, Mendoza, and Smith combine for six Olympic medals, including four gold. Completing the broadcast assignments are play-by-play commentators Beth Mowins, Pam Ward, Cara Capuano, Adam Amin, Holly Rowe, and Mark Neely.
