ESPN 3D to broadcast Auburn-Clemson football game

AUBURN, AL - Marking the first time ever an Auburn sporting event will be televised in 3D, the Auburn football game against Clemson on Sept. 18 will air on ESPN 3D. The game will also be broadcast on ESPN with kickoff slated for 6 p.m CT.

ESPN was the first to announce in the United States an exclusive 3D network in January 2010 which was the culmination of more than three years of testing 3D television.

The Auburn-Clemson game will be the third college football game to air on ESPN 3D this season, and just the fourth football college game ever to be broadcast in 3D.

Fans interested in viewing the game in 3D, must have ESPN 3D service and a 3D television.

ESPN has produced several 3D domestic telecasts, including the State Farm Home Run Derby in July 2010, the Masters in April 2010, a Harlem Globetrotters game in February 2010 and the 2009 USC-Ohio State college football game.

ESPN 3D is available in the United States to approximately 45 million households and has carriage agreements with DirecTV, Comcast and AT&T.
