    Re: BCS going to ESPN

    I wish the games were still on ABC, not ESPN on ABC.

    Forget the BCS on ESPN, Fox or ESPN on ABC.

    Bring back regular old ABC and I'd be happy.

    I believe the games will be on ABC because ESPN acts as the "sports department" since both are owned by Disney. Hence the ESPN on ABC.

    Below is within the article. Looks like a ESPN only telecast. They won't be farming it out to ABC.


    ESPN runs ABC Sports, but chose to slate the games for the cable channel, not the over-the-air network. Owning a valuable property like the BCS could help ESPN when it negotiates future subscription fees.

    Yep. It helps to read the article first.
