New Nebraska Cornhuskers Head Coach Mike Riley will be part of ESPN's National Championship wall to wall coverage on Monday.

Riley will be featured on ESPN2 during the College Football Playoff National Championship Game between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Oregon Ducks in the popular "Film Room" portion of the broadcast.

From ESPN's PR department:

Film Room: The popular option from last year – which included coaches and ESPN analysts predicting a fake punt the play before it occurred – will be available on ESPN2. The coverage will feature ESPN analysts Chris Spielman and Tom Luginbill with Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen, new Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi, who was defensive coordinator of this season’s Michigan State squad that played both Ohio State and Oregon, and new Nebraska coach Mike Riley, the former coach of Oregon rival Oregon State, providing in-depth X and O analysis of the game as it happens from a film room equipped with multiple camera angles, coaches clicker technology and telestration at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn. headquarters.

This was very popular last season with coaches like Kevin Sumlin, Paul Chryst and Steve Addazio on the call last year. Here's how it went last year.

I remember it last year, and I tried to watch the game and have this going in the background. My advice to you all is to DVR this and play it the next day or such. You'll have the game fresh in your mind, and will be able to pay attention much better.
