If you watched Pitt’s ACC title win over Wake Forest from home last week, you listened to the crew of Mark Jones, Robert Griffin III and Quint Kessenich. Well, they’ll once again be on the call for Pitt’s Peach Bowl appearance against No. 10 Michigan State on Dec. 30 at 7 p.m.
The ESPN broadcast crew features Jones and Griffin as the play-by-play and color commentator, respectively, with Kessenich on the field as the sideline reporter.
The Jones-Griffin pairing is a recent one for ESPN, with the former NFL quarterback joining the long-time ESPN broadcaster in the booth for college games this season. It’s not one of the company’s top crews yet, with so few games called, but the duo has immense potential.
With Kenny Pickett’s status for the game is suddenly up in the air following offensive coordinator Mark Whipple’s move to Nebraska, Pitt’s 3.5-point advantage has withered away to a pick’em or toss-up.
Pitt is looking for its first-ever win over Michigan State (having gone 0-6-1 previously), its first New’s Years Six bowl since 1981 and its first 12 win season since 1976.
