ESPN has added even more Georgia flavor to its broadcast plans for the College Football Playoff title game.
Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and former offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will be a part of the game’s Megacast, ESPN announced Friday.
Murray and Bobo will join College GameDay’s Georgia alums David Pollack and Maria Taylor as part of ESPN’s coverage team. Taylor will be making her CFP title-game debut; she will cover Georgia as she did for the Rose Bowl.
Murray will be part of the ESPN2 Homers broadcast, where he will be alongside ESPN commentator Adam Amin. Former Alabama standout Landon Collins will join ESPN’s Joe Tessitore to form the Alabama portion of the broadcast. All four will be on the field level from Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and Murray and Collins will be reacting and analyzing the game as if they were watching with a group of friends.
Bobo, now the coach at Colorado State, will join ESPN for the Coaches Film Room version of the telecast, which will air on ESPNews. He’ll be joined by Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald and former Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin. Bobo played at Georgia and was the offensive coordinator for much of former Georgia coach Mark Richt’s tenure in Athens before leaving for Colorado State. Bobo also coached Murray during his Georgia playing career.
Taylor and the rest of the primary broadcast team of Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Tom Rinaldi will be on ESPN. The network will have 110 cameras inside the stadium for the game.
Georgia fans also can listen to the hometown radio broadcast while watching the game via ESPN3.
It all gets started from Atlanta at 8 p.m. ET on Monday night.
