We’ve been waiting for the post-Erin Andrews era of college football sideline reporting and it’s officially here. Women who went to school to become the next Pageviews, get their shot this fall as Andrews moves to the Fox studio and Samantha Steele gets the Thursday night assignment. Jenn Brown, now the senior sideline reporter, leaves Thursdays for Saturday afternoons.

As for Fox, they’re unleashing rookie Julie Alexandria on Saturday nights with Gus Johnson and Charles Davis. With Andrews’ departure from ESPN, that opened a spot for Steele. She’ll become the new ogle face for college men on Saturday mornings. The Saturday primetime sideline gig on ESPN will be handled by Heather Cox. This job will probably belong to Steele, depending on how her Thursday night training gig goes.

Rookie of the Year: Kristen Ledlow

Works for Fox and is on pace to be a big name in the business. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Comeback of the Year: Heather Cox

40+ and going to be in HD on millions of televisions. A true vet

2012 Sideline Reporter MVP: Jenn Brown

ESPN sideline reporting is in transition and Brown still brings the sex appeal to drive men crazy. Still the epitome of what Pageviews built back in 2005. Forget that she got married in the offseason.
