The lights are on
Gamers have been asking for EA Sports to more fully utilize its partnership with ESPN for years, and NCAA Football 11 is trying to bolster the network's presence in the game.
Gregg Hedelsten, a designer for the game, runs through how the team at Tiburon is bringing ESPN into NCAA Football 11. The game and its look are still being tweaked, so these shots aren't necessarily the final product.
In-Game Score/Game Clock Interface
This the score bar that ESPN first used in the last bowl season, and it will signal touchdowns and perform like it does on TV

Switching between replays, playcalling, etc. will be punctuated by wipe animations using the ESPN logo
Gamers will be greeted with the standard ESPN college visual animations before they hit the field, complete with ESPN's college football theme
