Longtime CBS broadcaster Verne Lundquist has made the rounds in Tuscaloosa, Ala. this week, even stopping by for Alabama coach Nick Saban’s call-in radio show on Thursday night.
What will be Lundquist’s last stop before Saturday’s huge Texas A&M-Alabama game? That will be ESPN’s College Gameday.
Lundquist will be the guest picker on ESPN’s kickoff show, which will be live from Alabama’s “Walk of Champions” on Saturday morning. This news was announced in a tweet by ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit on Friday:
