Verne Lundquist Gets a College Football Travel Break This Year

SEC on CBSAthens, GA (Nov 27, 2008) - Last year, the CBS Sports College Football A Team of Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson, and Tracy Wolfson had to do major double duty Thanksgiving weekend. They had to call the LSU - Arkansas game on Friday, and then went to the Sunshine State for the Florida - Florida State match-up on Saturday.

CBS still has three games over the next two days, but this year they are using three announce teams for each of the games. On Friday afternoon, Don Criqui and Dan Fouts will call the game in Little Rock between LSU (7-4, 3-4 SEC) and Arkansas (4-7, 1-6 SEC) at 2:30 pm ET. Ken Mack is producing and Mark Grant will be directing this game. Grant, pictured left, does not escape double duty this weekend as after the game, we will have to set off for Saint Louis to cover Sunday's Dolphins - Ravens game.

On Saturday, the college football doubleheader kicks off with 23rd-ranked Georgia Tech (8-3, 5-3 ACC) facing number 11 Georgia (9-2, 6-2 SEC) at noon. In weather predicted to be cold and rainy, Georgia is looking to win their 8th straight against Tech, something that neither team has done in a long time. Georgia Tech is running an option offense under Coach Paul Johnson that Georgia may find hard to defend. Craig Bolerjack, pictured right from earlier this year, is back in Athens for the second time this season to call the play-by-play. He will be joined in the booth this time by CBS College Sports' Trev Alberts for color analysis. Steve Scheer is producing, with Jim Cornell directing.
