With the first games of the 2021 season almost here, the time has come to find out who will be announcing the ESPN-broadcast games. Notre Dame opens its season Sept. 5 at Florida State, giving it a Sunday primetime spot that will be reserved for NBC Sunday Night Football in the weeks to follow. Of course, this being a road game means the Irish will open 2021 on ABC. We now know that viewers who tune into the game will hear the calls of Joe Tessitore, Greg McElroy and Katie George.

Yes, I can hear several of you rolling your eyes at the mere thought of Tessitore and already trying to figure out how to sync the Irish radio call with your TV using your DVR. After all, Tessitore’s Monday Night Football broadcasts with Jason Witten and Booger McFarland are widely regarded as some of the worst in that program’s long history. However, the addition of George from the ACC Network should provide some insight into the conference that might otherwise get lost. McElroy doesn’t seem to get that much hate either, so I guess two out of three ain’t bad.
