Now, there is Joe Tes­si­tore.

Dur­ing the early '90s, af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Bos­ton Col­lege, he got his tele­vi­sion start at the Dal­las NBC tele­vi­sion af­fil­i­ate. Tes­si­tore re­turns to Texas this week­end as the play-by-play voice of ESPN's OU-Texas tele­cast.

“I've done OU big games be­fore and Texas big games be­fore,” Tes­si­tore said, “but never the Red River game. I am very aware of the his­tory and tra­di­tion of the game.”

For the Big 12 clash of a Sooner team that was stunned by Iowa State last week and a Longhorn team that needed two over­times to de­feat Kansas State, Tes­si­tore teams with an­a­lyst Todd Black­ledge and side­line re­porter Holly Rowe.

Much of Tes­si­tore's re­search has cen­tered on the quar­ter­backs: Sooner se­nior Baker May­field (who makes his third OUTexas start) and Longhorn first-year fresh­man Sam Eh­linger.

May­field's where­withal re­sults in a “mas­sive ad­van­tage” for OU, Tes­si­tore said.
