ESPN will formally announce their on-air assignments for the Bowl Championship Series on Friday, led by veteran play-by-play announcer Brent Musburger, analyst Kirk Herbstreit and sideline reporter Erin Andrews.
The trio will work the national championship game on Jan. 10 along with the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.
This is the first year that ESPN has all five BCS games on cable, and the network is planning to go all out with coverage, including four-hour (!!!!) pregame shows.
Nothing like a pregame show that’s longer than the actual game.
