FOX SPORTS BOASTS LOADED ROSTER OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL BROADCASTERS

Stalwarts Johnson, Davis & Klatt Joined By Newcomers Brando & Wannstedt

Insiders Feldman, Mandel & Travis Form Cross-Platform Triple-Threat

New York - The calendar may say "summer," but college football fans know that even as hot weather prevails, it won't be long until the days shorten, leaves turn and college football gets underway. As conference media days continue, FOX Sports unveils the studio personalities and game broadcast teams calling its exciting college football matchups from late August through early December. The announcement was made today by FOX Sports President and COO Eric Shanks and FOX Sports Executive Vice President, Production, John Entz.

"We've been methodically developing our college football depth chart for a few years now," Entz said. "The group we've assembled for 2014 is an exciting mix of veterans and FOX Sports newcomers that represents our deepest college football roster ever. We couldn't be more excited about the level of coverage we'll be delivering this season."

This year, FOX broadcasts a one-hour prime-time pregame show on Saturdays leading into the biggest game of the week. Rob Stone (@RobStoneONFOX) hosts alongside analysts Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) and former college and NFL head coach Dave Wannstedt, a new addition to the FOX Sports lineup. College football insiders Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB), Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) and Clay Travis (@ClayTravisBGID) also contribute to the network's studio coverage. Feldman and Mandel joined FOX Sports since last season, leaving their prior positions at CBSSports.com and SI.com, respectively.

The most exciting voice in sports, play-by-play announcer Gus Johnson once again teams with analyst Charles Davis (@CFD22), an All-SEC defensive back at Tennessee, to form FOX Sports' lead college football broadcast team. Johnson and Davis are joined by sideline reporter Molly McGrath (@MollyMcGrathFS1), who continues as co-host of FOX Sports 1's AMERICA'S PREGAME.

Analyst Joey Harrington returns for his second season in the booth and is joined by a new addition to FOX Sports, Joe Davis (@JoeDavisFOX), a former ESPN play-by-play broadcaster, who at age 25 became the youngest person ever to call a college football bowl game (2013 Poinsettia Bowl) for the network. FOX Sports San Diego's Kris Budden (@KrisBudden) joins Harrington and Davis on the sidelines.

Veteran broadcaster Tim Brando (@TimBrando), a recent addition to FOX Sports' college football and basketball coverage, calls Thursday night games on FOX Sports 1 with Klatt serving as analyst, and is also in the booth on Saturdays. Play-by-play announcer Craig Bolerjack (@BuckleUpBoler) returns to FOX Sports for his fourth season and teams with analyst Ryan Nece (@ryannece). The pair worked together last season with Nece serving as a sideline reporter/on-field analyst.

In addition, analysts Petros Papadakis (@PetrosAndMoney) and Coy Wire (@CoyWire) as well as rules expert Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) contribute to FOX Sports' wide-ranging college football coverage. FOX Sports' rich stable of college football analysts also offer their expertise regularly on FOX Sports 1 studio shows AMERICA'S PREGAME and FOX SPORTS LIVE.

FOX Sports kicks off the 2014 college football season with four straight days of action, beginning Thursday, Aug. 28 (10:00 PM ET) on FOX Sports 1 as Rutgers takes the field for the first time as a member of the Big Ten Conference, facing Washington State at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Play continues the following evening with Colorado State vs. Colorado at Sports Authority Field at Mile High (9:00 PM ET on FOX Sports 1), followed by a full slate of Saturday games, highlighted by Fresno State at USC (7:30 PM ET) on the FOX broadcast network. Then, in a rare Sunday showdown, FOX Sports 1 helps Baylor debut its beautiful new facility, McLane Stadium, as the Bears host SMU (7:30 PM ET).

FOX Sports presents college football fans some of the most exciting matchups in the country this season, with more than 100 games scheduled across its national and local broadcast and cable platforms. Top contests featuring Big 12, Pac-12 and Conference USA teams appear on the FOX broadcast network, FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports Networks (FSN), FOX College Sports, FOX Deportes and FOX Sports GO all season long, culminating with the Pac-12 and Big Ten conference championship games on back-to-back nights on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 5 and 6.
