    The ESPN "Who's Next" music competition is heating up!

Two bands have competed against each other each Saturday from Jan. 21 to Feb. 18 with four bands receiving a first-round bye as voted on by fans on Facebook.

    The final head-to-head tournaments will begin the week of Feb. 20 with the winning band unveiled on Saturday, March 3. The winning band's music will be used as a part of ESPN's Championship Week Presented by DICK'S Sporting Goods coverage, which is viewed by millions. The competing bands and links to their music are below. It would be great if you could post about the contest!

    Each of the participating 12 bands recorded a remix of ESPN's college basketball theme song and provided one of their original songs for use in a selected game telecast. The remixed theme song will be used when the game goes to and comes from commercial breaks during the telecast while the original music will be used as the soundtrack of a halftime highlights package.
