    Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer is joining a star-studded cast at FOX Sports for a competitor of ESPN's "College Gameday."

    Meyer is joining former USC greats Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart along with former Notre Dame quarterback and Central Ohio native Brady Quinn. The show will be hosted by Rob Stone.

    “With a head coach that won three national titles in 10 years, two of the most successful college quarterbacks in recent memory and one of the sport’s most electric running backs, our new college football pregame show has the game covered from all angles,” Mark Silverman, President, FOX Sports National Networks. “Not only will this all-star cast resonate with viewers because of their recent on-field accomplishments, but this group is going to have a lot of fun discussing the games each week.”

    The group will present a one-hour show that airs each Saturday during the college football season on the FOX broadcast network beginning with Week 1.
