This Saturday, CBS will air Duke-North Carolina game in primetime, the last time it will be able to do so as ESPN takes over the ACC contract and ownership of all conference games starting next season through 2023-24. To go out with a bang, CBS not only put the game in primetime, but it will also bring CBS College Sports into the picture with pre and postgame coverage. Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg will call the game from the Dean Dome for CBS. Adam Zucker and a cast of thousands, o.k., not thousands, but a few, will be on hand for CBS College Sports.
We have the press release for you.
