    Big Noon Kickoff leads directly into Big Noon Saturday, with the trio Gus Johnson, Joel Klatt, and Jenny Taft returning for their eighth consecutive season as FOX’s lead CFB broadcast team.

    FOX Sports announced part of its Big Noon Saturday broadcast slate for the 2024 season on Monday:

    • Week 2, Sept. 7: Texas at Michigan
    • Week 3, Sept. 14: Alabama at Wisconsin
    • Week 14, Nov. 30: Michigan at Ohio State

    Play-by-Play | Gus Johnson

    Johnson is a veteran in the industry, working play-by-play across multiple sports (NBA, college basketball, college football, NFL, MMA, and boxing) since 1996. He has become the voice of college football over the years, bringing the excitement fans feel at home to life on the TV.

    Even if you don’t know his name, you certainly know Johnson’s voice.

    Analyst | Joel Klatt

    Klatt set records as the quarterback at Colorado, but before that, he pursued a professional baseball career straight out of high school. After quick stints in the NFL, he has worked his way up from an analyst for Friday night high school football games in Denver to FOX Sports’ lead college football game analyst.

    Klatt also lends his voice leading up to and during the NFL Draft, using his years of playing experience and live coverage to offer analysis on the incoming class of rookies. He also isn’t prone to creating waves on social media due to some hot takes.

    Sideline Reporter | Jenny Taft

    A former collegiate lacrosse player, Taft has quickly risen up FOX’s ranks. She began her career with Fox Sports North in 2011, a year after graduating from Boston University with a broadcast journalism degree. There, she received valuable on-camera reps as the sideline reporter for the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx.
