For college football on TV, 'the season itself is the story'

CBS has stuck to a reliable formula for picking its SEC game of the week — make sure either LSU or Alabama is one of the teams.

South Alabama players wear masks before their game against Southern Mississippi on Thursday in Hattiesburg, Miss.

The networks that televise college football are adjusting to a smaller inventory of games because many conferences won't be playing this fall because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Cases of COVID-19 have spiked on many college campuses, and conferences continue to formulate testing protocols for players and coaches.

Ilan Ben-Hanan, who oversees ESPN's four college networks, said broadcasters will need to be flexible about postponements, cancellations and other changes for the foreseeable future.

Tag Garson, a senior vice president at Wasserman Sports, said the biggest storyline going into the season isn't about any team or player.
