BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - ESPN says it will test its ability to televise football games in 3-D with a special screening of the game between No. 4 USC and No. 6 Ohio State at three theaters on Sept. 12.
Tickets will be given away to fans listening to ESPN radio affiliates in Los Angeles, Dallas and Columbus, Ohio, later this week.
The Galen Center on the USC campus in Los Angeles will screen the game in 3-D, as will theaters in Columbus and Hurst, Texas - the lone neutral site for gathering unbiased fan reaction. ESPN staff will also watch a screening in Hartford, Conn., near its Bristol headquarters.
The game, starting at 8 p.m. Eastern time, will also be broadcast on ESPN and ESPN HD.
