ESPN will feature Evo 2017’s Street Fighter V finals as a special presentation on… ESPN 8: The Ocho?

No, you’re not waking up in a Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller movie. No, Rip Torn isn’t really a crazy dodgeball coach in a wheelchair. However, on August 8, you will wake up and find ESPN U temporarily rebranded as ESPN 8: The Ocho — the network for obscure sports in the movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.

At 2:30 PM EDT on Tuesday, August 8, The Ocho will be showing the Evo 2017 top 8 for Street Fighter V as part of their celebration of alternative sports. If you missed it live, catch the broadcast then! As a side note, you’ll have to wake up earlier (4:00 AM EDT early) to catch some actual dodgeball, though.
