Fiesta Bowl announcers decided by ESPN

Christian Petersen

The three-person crew for Kansas State vs. Oregon was announced by ESPN on Wednesday.

ESPN released the announcing crews for each bowl game it broadcasts in the 2012-13 bowl season, and Fiesta Bowl watchers will be getting an experienced crew. Brad Nessler will be on play-by-play duties, Todd Blackledge will be the color commentator and Holly Rowe will roam the sidelines.

The crew will be calling the game between the No. 5 Kansas State Wildcats and No. 4 Oregon Ducks on Thurs., Jan 3, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. CT.

Nessler, well-known for his role as the play-by-play announcer for EA Sports' NCAA Football franchise, has called college football games for ESPN since 1997. Blackledge has been a college football TV analyst since 1994 and led Penn State to a 31-5 record as the Nittany Lions' quarterback from 1981-83. Rowe has done sideline reporting for ESPN since 1995.

The announcing crew on the radio side will be Bill Rosinski, David Norrie, and Joe Schad. ESPN Deportes also has coverage, with announcers Eduardo Varela and Pablo Viruega.
