ESPN's College Gamebay originated from the SEC Championship Game Between Alabama VS Georgia from Atlanta this weekend too!!!
According to the National Football Foundation schedule- Larry Weir,Paul Sorensen and Keith Osso will be the sideline reporter instead of Trey Bender and Jay Taylor will be working the FCS 2nd round Playoff game between Wagner at Eastern Washington!
@CUbsfan NFF tends to make a lot of mistakes when it comes to ESPN3. That is the Eastern Washington radio team. If NFF doesn't get a list of the announcers doing the game, they usually put down the home teams radio team.
CBS will have it's studio team of Tim Brando,Spencer Tillman, Part-timer Archie Manning and beat reporter Tony Barnhart live at the SEC Championship Game from Atlanta!
For those of you that were wondering, FOX is Having Petros Papadakis as a Sideline analyst and he will be woking the Pac-12 and Big Ten Championship game with FOX's # 1 broadcast team of Gus Johnson, Charles Davis and sideline reporter Julie Alexandria this Friday and Saturday!
I am not that suprised that the Pac-12 Network is having Kevin Calabro fill in for Ted Robinson on their #1 broadcast team with Glenn Parker and Sideline Analyst Ryan Nece for their coverage of the makeup game between Nicholls State at Oregon State!
