FOX SPORTS UNVEILS STAR-STUDDED COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREGAME SHOW COMING THIS FALL

Hour-Long Program on FOX Features Urban Meyer, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn and Host Rob Stone

NEW YORK - Today, FOX Sports announces plans for its new college football pregame show, featuring some of the biggest names to have played or coached the sport in the last 15 years. Host Rob Stone sits alongside a panel of analysts comprised of three-time national championship coach Urban Meyer, USC legends Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart and record-setting Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn. The one-hour show airs each Saturday during the college football season on the FOX broadcast network beginning Week 1. Today's announcement was made by Mark Silverman, President, FOX Sports National Networks.

"With a head coach that won three national titles in 10 years, two of the most successful college quarterbacks in recent memory and one of the sport's most electric running backs, our new college football pregame show has the game covered from all angles," Silverman said. "Not only will this all-star cast resonate with viewers because of their recent on-field accomplishments, but this group is going to have a lot of fun discussing the games each week."

Meyer and Bush are new additions to FOX Sports, while Quinn spent the last five seasons calling games for the network. Stone and Leinart have contributed to FOX Sports' college football coverage since 2013.

"Urban and Reggie will make fantastic additions to our already impressive college football roster, and we're looking forward to seeing Brady shine in his new role," Silverman added. "We think that this entire lineup will educate and entertain viewers with the unique FOX attitude that viewers are familiar with."

One of the sport's most successful head coaches, Meyer won three national championships - with Florida in 2006 and 2008, and with Ohio State in 2014. At Utah, he coached quarterback Alex Smith to the No. 1 overall NFL Draft Pick and at Florida, coached Tim Tebow to the 2007 Heisman Trophy. A 17-year Division I head coach, Meyer amassed a 187-32 record (.854 win percentage) at the helms of Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State. No stranger to sports television, Meyer worked as a studio analyst for one season with ESPN, in 2011, between positions at Florida and Ohio State.

Bush is one of the most prolific running backs in college football history. In three seasons, he was twice named a consensus All-American and the Pac-10 Player of the Year, and following the 2005 season, in which he averaged an impressive 8.7 yards per carry, he was named the Associated Press College Football Player of the Year and won the Walter Camp and Doak Walker awards. An 11-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl champion as a member of the New Orleans Saints, Bush also works as an analyst on NFL Network and has appeared as a guest on multiple FOX Sports studio shows.

Quinn joined FOX Sports prior to the 2014 season and called a full schedule of college football games with play-by-play partner Joe Davis since 2015. A four-year starting quarterback at Notre Dame, he set numerous records, led the Fighting Irish to two BCS bowl appearances and finished fourth (2005) and third (2006) in the Heisman Trophy voting.

A Heisman Trophy winner and College Football Hall of Famer, Leinart first made appearances on FOX Sports programming in 2013 and moved to the network's studio desk full-time in 2015. He quarterbacked USC to a BCS title and remains one of the most decorated players in Trojan and college football history.

A multi-sport star for FOX Sports, Stone anchors the network's college football, college basketball and soccer studio coverage and is the lead play-by-play voice of the Go Bowling! Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour on FOX and FS1. A standout on the Colgate soccer pitch, he was recently inducted into the CT Soccer Hall of Fame.

FOX Sports will announce additional college football coverage information, including its full list of game broadcasters, at a later date.
