Ahead of its first season without the SEC, CBS is making an addition to its College Football Today studio show.

On Wednesday, the network announced that long-time analyst Aaron Taylor would be joining College Football Today, the long-running CBS pregame, halftime, and postgame studio show.

Additionally, CBS post-game coverage will be expanded this season, running until 7:30 p.m. ET following the network’s 3:30 p.m. ET window.

Taylor joins the returning College Football Today cast of Adam Zucker, Brian Jones, and Rick Neuheisel.

CBS Sports executive producer and EVP of Production Harold Bryant praised Taylor in a release. Taylor also commented on joining the cast.

“Aaron’s extensive football IQ has been integral to our coverage for many years, and we look forward to him joining Adam, BJ and Rick on Saturdays given their deep chemistry cemented over the years on INSIDE COLLEGE FOOTBALL,” said Bryant. “And as we extend our post-game coverage, Aaron’s personality and analysis will be a welcome addition with more runway to recap the most pivotal games and moments from earlier in the day.”

“BJ, Rick, Adam and I have so much respect for the sport and for the platform we’re given to break down all the exciting twists and turns that college football offers,” said Taylor. “It gives us the freedom to not take ourselves too seriously and have some fun at each other’s expense. I can’t wait to sit with those guys on Saturdays and be the one person at the desk who isn’t battling a receding hairline.”

Taylor is no stranger to CBS college football coverage, serving as CBS Sports Network’s lead college football analyst. He’s also worked with the Zucker, Jones, and Neuheisel trio on Inside College Football for nearly a decade.

CBS will air Notre Dame at Purdue on Saturday, September 14 and USC at Michigan on Saturday, September 21. Additionally, the network airs the 2024 Big Ten Championship game on Saturday, December 7.
