NEW YORK (December 1, 2011) –The NBC Sports Group will air its final college football game of the year this Saturday when the No. 18 TCU Horned Frogs host the UNLV Rebels at 2:30 p.m. ET. UNLV looks to end its season strong, while TCU is on a seven-game winning streak and trying to improve its bowl position.
VERSUS will surround its college football game coverage this weekend with pre- and post-game coverage as well as halftime reports from NBC’s Football Night in America studio (Studio 8G) at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. The coverage will be hosted by Liam McHugh with 1984 Heisman Trophy-winner Doug Flutie and Super Bowl champion and former NFL tight end Roland Williams serving as studio analysts.
COMMENTATORS: Paul Burmeister (play-by-play) helms VERSUS’s Mountain West coverage. The former University of Iowa quarterback and host for NFL Network will be joined by former NFL quarterback Shaun King as analyst with Anthony Herron as the sideline analyst.
WILLIAMS ON THE GAME: “TCU has won a league-record 23 straight Mountain West games and this is its final game ever in the conference. UNLV has their work cut out for them. To create some magic, the team will look to senior linebacker Nate Carter and senior defensive lineman James Dunlap to lead their defense versus the successful Horned Frogs.”
