Franklin to Make Thursday ESPN Appearance, Talk National Championship
James Franklin will serve as an ESPN guest analyst in advance of the College Football National Championship game for the second consecutive year.
Penn State’s first-year head coach will appear on ESPN Thursday and record other segments to be aired Sunday.
Live from outside of the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Franklin and a roundtable of coaches will discuss all things college football and the upcoming Oregon-Ohio State clash. Franklin will appear on “SportsCenter” at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, and again later in the day at 12:20 p.m. His taped appearances on “Championship Drive” will be seen Sunday at 8 p.m. on ESPN2 and ESPNews.
Last year, Franklin also appeared on ESPN’s national championship game coverage.
Franklin’s Nittany Lions finished with a 7-6 record after a riveting 31-30 overtime win over Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl.
