Super Bowl XLVII Announcing Assignments

Super Bowl XLVIII with Stadium

It's showtime. This Sunday the NFL's crowning event takes place live from the Meadowlands (weather permitting) as the Seahawks and the Broncos determine which team will prevail with bragging rights for the next year. Who is your money on? If you ask me, well I don't bet. I say this game depends solely on the wind factor. If the wind doesn't do anything to stop the Broncos offense, Seattle will find they are in for a huge shock. Yes, I realize the Seahawks defense is its strength, but they beat the 49ers with mostly double teams. You cant double team the Broncos receivers because there are too many targets. I expect a score somewhere in the 31-24 range, and right now I favor the Broncos. That could change depending on if the weather forecast alters during the week. But enough of my opinions. I'm sure most of you don't care about them, and I don't know why you'd trust my opinion to determine any type of odds. I don't gamble. I just pick straight up winners. 

There are two things you should note with the Super Bowl. First off the Super Bowl will be shown on a US Spanish speaking network for the first time. FOX Deportes will use their regular college football crew to cover the Superbowl for both FOX Deportes and should you use the SAP button to change the language to Spanish on your TV. 

Second, Fox Sports GO will offer a free preview on Super Bowl Sunday so anyone can watch the game on any type of streaming device that isn't a phone. Sorry phone fans. The phone partners won't allow Fox Sports GO preview to extend to mobile devices. The preview will last from midnight Super Bowl Sunday until 3 AM Monday morning and will include all the coverage of all the pregame and in-game festivities from FOX, Fox Sports 1, and FOX Deportes. You can even watch Fox Sports Live after the game, should you choose too, for this one night anywhere in the US.

Finally, Westwood One will not be the only radio crew providing the game. It was announced on Wednesday that ESPN Deportes Radio will carry the game to Spanish audiences all around the glob. Not only was it announced that ESPN Deportes Radio would carry the game, but they actually announced who the crew will be calling the game. So for the first time all year, Eye on Sky and Air Sports will list the ESPN Deportes Radio announce team.

And now, here's your not so secret Superbowl announcing crews. 

(FOX) Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Pamela Oliver, Erin Andrews
(FOX Deportes) John Laguna, Brady Poppinga, Francisco X. Rivera, Tony Santiago, Rodrigo Arana
(Westwood One) Kevin Harlan, Boomer Esiason, Mark Malone, James Lofton
(ESPN Deportes Radio) Kenneth Garay, Sebastian Martinez-Christensen, Marcelo Sandrin
