ESPNU Summer House returns for a second season July 31 on ESPNU. The show brings together six of the nation's top incoming college football freshmen to spend one week living under the same roof, joined by NFL veteran Chris Spielman. The players will share a house in Jersey City, N.J., outside of New York City. The eight, 30-minute episodes will follow the diverse group of athletes as they interact and engage in various day-to-day competitive challenges, ultimately vying for the title "King of the House." The series will be aired Tuesdays (July 31 – September 18) at 9 p.m. ET on ESPNU, with re-airs generally scheduled for Wednesdays (starting Aug. 15) at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
The group of players will participate in multiple football challenges and various other challenges that will test them mentally and physically. In some competitions, sports celebrity guests will join the players like last season when Gale Sayers (Chicago Bears Hall of Famer) stopped by. On location shooting is planned for New York City, Philadelphia and the ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn.
