"Super Tuesday" appears on ESPN and ESPN2 every Tuesday in prime time with the biggest regular-season games in college basketball. The show, whose official name is "Super Tuesday presented by KFC", is similar to "Big Monday", "Thursday Night Showcase" and "Wednesday Night Hoops". All of these games, including the in-studio reports, are broadcast on both ESPNHD and ESPN2HD.

On ESPN the games include a Southeastern Conference matchup at 7pm ET with Brad Nessler and Jimmy Dykes, action follows at 9pm ET with a Big Ten matchup at 9pm ET with Brent Musburger providing play-by-play and analysis by Steve Lavin. Erin Andrews is usually the sideline reporter for the Musburger/Lavin team while Jeannie Edwards fulfills the role for the Nessler/Dykes team. The in-studio host is Rece Davis along with analysts Jay Bilas and Hubert Davis. They deliver the half-time and post-game reports, along with live in-game updates, and also appear on "College GameNight" later that night during a segment known as the "Trifecta".

At 7:30pm ET on ESPN2 is a game usually involving mid-major schools. Bob Wischuzen provides play-by-play, with Doug Gottlieb as an analyst.

In 2008, Super Tuesday will feature a Big Ten, SEC doubleheader. The games will air on ESPN with the Big Ten contest at 7pm ET and the SEC game following at 9pm ET. [http://www.espnmediazone.com/press_releases/2007_10_oct/20071015_MoreThan1050MensCollegeBasketballGamesonABCandESPNnetworks.htm]
