With Gus Johnson as the lead play-by-play announcer and a bevy of solid color commentators, Fox Sports is quickly becoming one of the top places to watch college sports.

The former Ohio State coach is among those Fox is bringing in to start a college football pregame show, much like GameDay, to compete with ESPN, the New York Post is reporting.

The former Ohio State head football coach stepped down in Columbus after the Buckeyes' Rose Bowl win over Washington, and it looked like the veteran coach was set to take a hiatus from the sport altogether. "We think that this entire lineup will educate and entertain viewers with the unique FOX attitude that viewers are familiar with".

Bush is one of the most prolific running backs in college football history.

Fox Sports is one of the top networks when it comes to covering sports events.

Sporting News first reported Meyer's involvement with Fox back in January, weeks after his final game as Ohio State's head coach. Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour on FOX and FS1.
