Kirk Herbstreit starts the day in Knoxville, Tenn., for ESPN and ends it at the Pasadena Rose Bowl for ABC, with a private jet excursion in between.
Such is his life.
The A-team of Chris Fowler, Herbstreit and Sam Ponder have UCLA’s Saturday afternoon contest at the Rose Bowl against Stanford (Channel 7, 5 p.m.). That’s all after Herbstreit spends the morning with ESPN “College GameDay” (6-to-9 a.m.) as it previews the Florida-Tennessee contest from the Vols’ home stadium.
Meanwhile, as they’re having “Vin Scully Appreciation Night” at Dodger Stadium on Friday, newest Dodgers play-by-play man Joe Davis will be calling USC at Utah for Fox Sports 1 with Brady Quinn and Jenny Taft at 6 p.m.
(Sports USA also has John Ahlers and John Robinson calling USC-Utah on the national syndicated radio network as well as Isaac Lowenkron and Doug Plank on UCLA-Stanford).
