BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - Chris Fowler is taking over play-by-play responsibilities for the marquee Saturday night college football game on ABC.
ESPN announced Thursday that Fowler had signed a nine-year contract extension through 2023. The network said a day earlier that Brent Musburger was leaving ''Saturday Night Football'' and doing games for SEC Network.
Fowler will continue to host ''College GameDay'' on Saturday morning, then travel to the site of the prime-time game if it's in a different location, as analyst Kirk Herbstreit already does.
Fowler and Herbstreit have worked together on ''GameDay'' since 1996 and will now team up on the Saturday night games.
Fowler joined ESPN in 1986 and has hosted ''GameDay'' since 1990.
He called ESPN's Thursday night college football games from 2006-09. Fowler will continue to host and announce tennis coverage from the Grand Slam tournaments.
