New Faces Set for ESPN College Football Studio Shows this Fall

Davis' Shift to College GameDay built by The Home Depot Creates Bristol Studio Changes

Host Rece Davis joining ESPN College GameDay built by The Home Depot sets in motion several changes to ESPN's college football studio coverage this fall with new roles for hosts Adnan Virk and Chris Cotter, as well as analysts Joey Galloway, Danny Kanell and Mark May.

College football's longest running and most celebrated pregame show College GameDay will see Davis take over full-time hosting duties from long-time host Chris Fowler when the crew takes to the road opening weekend on Saturday, Sept. 5. He will be joined by familiar faces in analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack, as well as contributors Samantha Ponder, Tom Rinaldi and Gene Wojciechowski each Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon ET on ESPN.

The ABC and ESPN studios will also see changes for 2015. John Saunders will continue to anchor Saturday's ABC studio coverage, along with second-year analyst Mack Brown and 10-year ESPN analyst Mark May, who will make the switch from ESPN's studio. ESPN's new studio trio features host Adnan Virk with analysts Joey Galloway and Danny Kanell, who will handle pre-game, halftime and post-game reporting on Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the season.

Analysts Butch Davis and Robert Smith will again team up to add to ESPN2's Saturday studio coverage with new host Chris Cotter.

SEC Nation host and veteran play-by-play announcer Joe Tessitore will return to Bristol, Conn., each Saturday night to host College Football Final Presented by AT&T following the conclusion of the day's games.

ESPNU's studio shows from Charlotte will be hosted by Matt Schick and Brendan Fitzgerald, along with analysts Charles Arbuckle and Kevin Carter.

College Football Live - the weekday studio show with analysis and discussion on the sport's biggest news - will be hosted most days by Cotter, with a rotating roster of analysts live in studio. The 30-minute program will air each weekday during the regular season generally at 2 p.m. on ESPN or ESPN2. On most Fridays, College Football Live will originate from the College GameDay site. An audio version of College Football Live will be available as an ESPN Podcast.

Championship Drive: Who's In? - the Sunday studio show will review each weekend's games and dive into the playoff debate each week in a 30-minute show format beginning October 4 at 1 p.m. Hosted by Virk, a rotating cast of analysts include Davis, Heather Dinich, Brad Edwards, Kanell, May and Smith.

College Football Playoff: Top 25 - ESPN's exclusive reveal of the College Football Playoff weekly rankings as determined by the Selection Committee - will again feature Davis, along with analysts Herbstreit, Galloway, Kanell and Pollack, on Tuesdays beginning in October on ESPN (full schedule forthcoming).
