“I’ve always loved the college game and couldn’t be more excited to call Saturday night college football for LEARFIELD,” said Golic. “I’m really looking forward to the call with my play-by-play partner, Kate Scott, who just finished an incredible job calling Olympic basketball. We hope to entertain with football, food, fun, and so much more.”
Scott added, “Mike Golic and college football!? What more could you want on a fall Saturday night! How about going back and forth with Golic during a game? Sprinkle in a healthy dose of the local food, drink, and wacky traditions that make college football so special and I’m smiling and laughing to myself already just thinking about the fun we’re going to have in the booth this fall!”
