Oklahoma football: Fans hearing old voices on telecasts
From the department of strange but true comes this nugget courtesy of media observer Josh Bostic. The Sooners this season have played four games that were televised with play-by-play announcers who also called OU football before the Bob Stoops era.
That’s at least 14 years ago.
Mike Patrick did the ABC play-by-play for the OU-Iowa State game. Patrick is a long-timer in the business — he was the voice of ESPN’s Sunday Night Football from 1987-2006. Patrick called the OU at Texas Tech opener in 1992 on ESPN.
Brent Musburger did the play-by-play for the OU-Notre Dame game. Musburger has been around for 40 years and called a bunch of major events. Musburger called a variety of pre-Stoops OU games, including the 1987 OU-Nebraska game.
Bill Land called the OU-Florida A&M game on pay-per-view. Land has been a fixture on Southwest sporting telecasts for many years. He called the 1993 OU-TCU game on HSE, a forerunner of Fox Sports Net.
