College Football Live is a show that airs weekdays on ESPN or ESPN2, and ESPNU. Its premiere was on Monday, July 23, 2007. Rece Davis is the lead host, and it also features ESPN college football analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Jesse Palmer, Trevor Matich, Andre Ware, and others. College Football Live also features Live interviews with college coaches and players via the "Direct TV Mobile Studio".


As Davis mentioned in the opening of the debut, College Football Live aims to be the most fan-interactive show on television, featuring email questions and video segments sent in by fans on every show. After the opening music and graphics, the show shifts into the ESPN side studio and Davis and the analysts open the show debating a top story of the day. After their segment has completed, they send it to Joe Schad or another insider on the situation who gives their take on it and breaks other information. Then, the segment "Live Feedback" takes place and questions sent in by viewers are answered by the personalities. After this segment, there are two rotating blocks, which on some days are two interviews but on other days, could be debate, highlights or breaking news.

At some point during the broadcast, the segment "EA Sports Simulator" is shown. In this segment, a key game is simulated on the video game NCAA Football 08 and highlights and score are shown. After this, a short debate segment is held before the closing segment "Extra Points" which is the same as "Live feedback" except done with a timer. As Rece Davis' trademark opening line he says "and here's (random college mascot) to give me the new questions". The show is supposed to be the college version of NFL Live, but is actually more similar to NASCAR Now in that it focuses more on guests and debate than breaking news. It also is similar to the show in that the analysts do not appear on the whole program and only appear for the debate segments.
