LSU vs. Florida State: ESPN reportedly assigns broadcasting crew for season opener
The broadcasting crew for LSU and Florida State is reportedly set, and it’s a well-known trio of Joe Tessitore, Greg McElroy and Katie George.
The news comes from sports media Twitter account Fake Rudy Martzke, who reported on the Sept. 4 matchup that will be played in the Superdome in New Orleans and broadcast on ESPN.
This has all the makings of a big game, and Florida State about a month ago announced a sell out of its 30,000-seat allotment of tickets.
Around the Dial: ESPN will have Joe Tessitore. Greg McElroy, and Katie George on the call for the Allstate Louisiana Kickoff (New Orleans) in Week 1 on Sunday, September 4th, for the matchup between FSU/LSU.

This game is part of a two-game series, and the second will be played in 2023, on Labor Day weekend on Sunday, Sept. 3, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
The Tigers are 2-7 all-time against Florida State. In the previous matchup between the two programs, FSU won 27-16 in Tiger Stadium back in 1991.
This game is a key start for Brian Kelly to develop momentum since LSU’s schedule is backloaded, and the key to building the program could get a boost with a big non-conference victory early.
