ESPN announced that Chris Fowler will join Kirk Herbstreit and take over the play-by-play responsibilities for marquee Saturday night college football games on ABC.

ESPN announced Thursday that Fowler had signed a nine-year contract extension through 2023. The network said a day earlier that Brent Musburger was leaving "Saturday Night Football" and will do games for the SEC Network.
Fowler will continue to host "College GameDay" on Saturday mornings, then travel to the site of the prime-time game if it's in a different location, as analyst Kirk Herbstreit already does.
