Todd Blackledge of NBC Sports and Big Ten Saturday Night begins his 30th season as a network college football analyst this year. After leading Penn State to a national championship as quarterback in 1982, he played seven seasons in the NFL for Kansas City and Pittsburgh before transitioning to the sports media world. Blackledge has worked for ABC, CBS, ESPN, and the Big East Network, but this weekend will be his first time calling a game from Notre Dame stadium. Join him and the SMAC minor for a conversation about his career trajectory, his work, and the sports media industry.
