New in 2019 is the launch of the Tailgate at the Showdown, a live-streamed broadcast featuring content focusing on the game at the host school as well as features, updates, and information about other games around the Tri-State.


Modeled after the popular ESPN College Gameday, fans locally and nationwide can tune in six weeks this season to Cincinnati’s own Tom Gamble (creator of the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown and former co-host of the Two Angry Guys on local radio) and former UC Bearcats and NFL quarterback, Tony Pike.

In conjunction with Fox19 and, the Tailgate at the Showdown will bring viewers and listeners a combination of live interviews, feature segment, previews of biggest games in town and highlights of the interactive Fan Zone on site during each Tailgate.

Live broadcast will be 5:00 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted on the schedule.
