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.
