Just two weeks into the 2022 college football season, ESPN’s popular pregame show has made a significant addition to its lineup.
ESPN’s College GameDay has reportedly added former NFL punter and popular multimedia statistician Pat McPhee to its permanent lineup, according to Andrew Margand of the New York Post . McAfee is expected to make his debut Saturday when the show heads to Austin for Texas’ game against No. 1 Alabama.
McAfee, 35, hosts a daily talk show on YouTube and will continue to do so, as well as a regular appearance on WWE’s Friday Night SmackDown on Fox. McAfee also has a deal with FanDuel, which will reportedly pay him $120 million over the next four years.
McAfee has continued to call games for ESPN2’s alternate broadcasts over the years. He tweeted about the College Game Day deal Tuesday night.
McAfee wrote: “It’s an absolute honor that they tweeted about me 2.” “Game Day is a testament to being a fan forever. So many moving parts including some really cool conversations with the good guys from WWE.. all moved quickly. Stupid life of all time.
