EL PASO, Texas – College Football is celebrating 150 years of existence, while CBS and the Sun Bowl Association have been partners for more than 50 years. CBS produced a special, which ran on Saturday, Nov. 2, nationally.
“We have such a great relationship with CBS and they have treated us extremely well over the years, it’s simply the logical and right thing that we honor the company as a Sun Bowl Legend,” Olivas said. “CBS has helped put us among the best-of-the-best bowl games in the country and we cannot thank them enough.”
The Sun Bowl was first televised on CBS in 1968 when Auburn defeated Arizona 34-10 with Lindsey Nelson and Hall of Famer Frank Gifford announcing the game. Other notable announcers that CBS Sports has provided over the years include Verne Lundquist, Pat Summerall, Tom Brookshier, Burt Reynolds, Pat Haden, Pat O’Brien, Dan Fouts, Ara Parseghian, Michele Tafoya, Tracy Wolfson, Brent Musburger and Jim Nantz.
The 2019 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl will be televised on CBS for the 52nd-straight year with kickoff set for 12 p.m. (MT).
