Get ready, college football fans. Sam Ponder is set to return to the sidelines.

After a successful role on ESPN’s College GameDay, Ponder is set to take on an even bigger role. ESPN announced on Wednesday that Ponder is set to become the ABC Saturday Night Football sideline reporter this season.

The network has also made some additional personnel changes.

Steve Levy will be teamed with Brian Griese. And Sam Ponder will now be sideline reporter with Fowler and Herbstreit on ABC primetime.

It’s tough to find people who don’t appreciate Ponder, so it will be great to see her back in her element.

Congrats on the new gig, Sam!
