New ESPN Features on XBox Live Today

Back in October, Microsoft rolled out a dashboard update that included ESPN3. Now they’ve announced a few new features just in time for the college football bowl games.

First, they’re kicking off the “College Bowl Showdown,” which will allow members to predict the outcome of games, earn points, compete against friends, and even win prizes like a trip to the 2011 ESPY awards, ESPN headquarters and more. Even better, you can catch 32 bowl games, including all five BCS games, live via

The second addition is the ability to use a “play all” option when watching ESPN highlights, which will combine highlights into one seamless video. You can also choose to watch a highlight reel by sport or by league.

These additions will be available today, so you should really get your Jimmy the Greek hat on and go pick some winners!

If you’re into press releases, you can read ESPN’s or Microsoft’s for more info.
