On Thursday, NBC officially announced their broadcast team for Big Ten football games.

Noah Eagle and Todd Blackledge will call the package, with Kathryn Tappen serving as sideline reporter. Studio coverage plans weren’t announced, though Maria Taylor is expected to host. The news about Eagle and Blackledge was first reported last month, with Tappen’s addition being reported a couple weeks later.

ESPN released a statement from Senior VP of Production Lee Fitting on Blackledge’s departure from the company, which Blackledge acknowledged.

Eagle, Blackledge, and Tappen will work 13 Big Ten games this season, airing on NBC and Peacock each Saturday beginning in Week 1.

Anyway, that’s one college football broadcasting domino out of the way. What’s next?
