The Week One announcing schedule for ESPN listed a few of the new teams, but I wasn't exactly sure if those were official or not. Well, I now have the full list and there are definitely some interesting pairings that will be covering College Football for the network this Fall.
A Few Notes:
- The teams of Musburger-Herbstreit-Salters, Nessler-Griese-Maguire, Patrick-Blackledge-Rowe, Franklin-Cunningham, McDonough-Spielman-Stone, Jones-Davie, and Pasch-Ware-Andrews are all still intact.
- Jesse Palmer is in the booth instead of Doug Flutie on Thursday nights along with Chris Fowler, Craig James and Erin Andrews.
- Flutie will still be on the ABC Studio show with John Saunders and James.
- Rece Davis, Lou Holtz and Mark May have been moved to just weekday games.
