    by -

    For the fans that won’t be in attendance for the Music City Bowl in Nashville, the television or radio broadcast will likely be the way the game is viewed this December. And now, those respective commentators for the bowl game have been announced by ESPN.

    The Music City Bowl will take place at 3:00 p.m. ET on Dec. 30 and will feature the Tennessee Volunteers and the Purdue Boilermakers.

    For the television broadcast on ESPN, the commentary team will consist of Tom Hart, Jordan Rodgers, and Cole Cubelic, according to an ESPN press release.

    On the other hand, the ESPN Radio broadcast will feature Dave Neal, Deuce McAllister, and Jalyn Johnson.

    ESPN will be broadcasting four-straight bowl games on that Thursday, with the Music City Bowl in the second time slot. Immediately before the clash in Nashville will be the Duke’s Mayo Bowl featuring North Carolina against South Carolina.

    Heading into the game, although admittingly still quite a ways out, Tennessee is the betting favorite. On DraftKings, the Vols are a three-point favorite, while the Action Network has Tennessee as a one-point favorite.

    Additionally, ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg has published his official bowl season picks. In the middle of those is his Music City prediction, which favors Tennessee over Purdue by a score of 37-26.
