Event Previews

College Football Week #12 schedule cut again by postponements; #9 Indiana at #3 Ohio State on Fox

By Thursday afternoon, there were  postponements/cancellation in double figures due to Covid.

It’s worth noting the couple women working as play-by-players this weekend, Lisa Byington and Courtney Lyle. (Lisa’s game Michigan State – Maryland has been cancelled/postponed.)

Big game this weekend has #9 Indiana traveling to the horseshoe #3 Ohio State. Gus Johnson and Joel Klatt have it on Fox.

Don Orlovsky is working #6 Florida at Vanderbilt. Don needs to economize his commentary to be worth something.

The guys who work games from home studios might be doing a couple games this weekend. Will be interesting to see if one of these home studio announcers will at some point work three games in one day. Just for kicks!

Four top ten teams play at high noon on  Saturday.
