OSU will likely have a big audience on Saturday.

The national audience that was served points galore in OSU’s season-opener vs. Central Michigan that delivered 102 total points will be gifted good visibility into the Cowboys’ high-flying offense again in Week 2, as OSU-Arizona State will air on ESPN2. The game, set for a 6:30 p.m. kick, is one of several primetime matchups worth watching in the premium window.

On the air, the broadcast will feature long-time sportscaster Rod Gilmore as well as Dave Flemming, which should be a great pairing given their experience and knowledge. Tiffany Blackmon, a former soccer star who cut her teeth as a reporter on NFL Network, will buttress the ESPN coverage as well.

As always, the Cowboy Radio Network will provide additional insight with the great trio of Dave Hunziker (play-by-play), John Holcomb (analysis) and Robert Allen (sideline) all teaming up. Those outside the Cowboy Radio Network coverage areas can listen through The Varsity Network app.

Despite not being on the main ESPN channel for Saturday, there figures to be a pretty substantial audience that will tune in. On main ESPN at 6 p.m. is a ho-hum matchup between Florida and Kentucky. On ABC, Stanford-USC may draw some eyes but probably won’t dominate the time slot. Most of the really good games — Alabama-Texas and Tennessee-Pitt, for instance — are in either the morning or afternoon time windows which could also bolster viewership.
