The announcing team for the game telecast will be Mike Keith (play-by-play) and former Vol and NFL quarterback Pat Ryan (color analyst). Keith is the voice of the NFL's Tennessee Titans and is entering his 15th season as the team's Director of Broadcasting. Keith and Ryan teamed together on the radio from 1999-2004 on the Titans Network. An interesting piece of trivia is that Keith worked Tennessee's first pay-per-view game and he will broadcast the last one. Keith served as the sideline pay-per-view reporter for Tennessee's game at UCLA in 1989 while still a University of Tennessee student. The upcoming SEC Network will assume all previously held SEC pay-per-view football rights starting in 2014.
At halftime viewers will be treated to an interview and feature on University of Tennessee Coach Butch Jones along with previews from the new "Peyton Manning Collection" DVD release from Vol Network Home Entertainment. The DVD is available at participating Walgreens and Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations, the UT Bookstore and online at volnetwork.tv.
