Erin Andrews, a former host for ESPN's “College Game Day,” will compete against her former show this fall season when Fox Sports 1 launches “Fox College Saturday” on Aug. 31. Andrews will host the 9-11 a.m. show with former college football players Eddie George, Joel Klatt and Petros Papadakis. Also joining the studio crew will be rules analyst Mike Pereira, a former NFL and college official, and writer Clay Travis.

Also returning for Fox this season are the lead broadcast team of play-by-play announcer Gus Johnson and analyst Charles Davis. They will be joined by sideline reporter Kristina Pink, who joined Fox in 2012 as an NFL sideline reporter. The trio will make its season debut at 6 p.m. Sept. 7 as OU hosts West Virginia.

College football games on the Fox will be preceded by a 30-minute edition of “Fox College Saturday,” featuring George and Klatt as analysts and host Rob Stone.

Stone also will host pregame coverage leading up to Thursday evening games on Fox Sports 1, with analysts Coy Wire and Ryan Nece. Justin Kutcher will call the games with Klatt and Papadakis as analysts and Pink on the sidelines.

Other broadcast crews for Fox Sports 1, FSN and FCS games include Craig Bolerjack, Joey Harrington and reporter Nece; Kutcher and James Bates with reporter Brady Poppinga, and Adam Alexander and former Texas quarterback Chris Simms.
