Former 'SEC on CBS' sideline reporter defends network for keeping music for Big Ten games
CBS is keeping its iconic music for its upcoming Big Ten football games, causing an SEC Twitter meltdown. Former CBS sideline reporter Jamie Erdahl, however, defended the network for using the music when promoting B1G games.
Absolutely ON BOARD with @CBSSports keeping what’s theirs and what’s theirs is absolute magic — the college football SONG… 🔥🔥🔥 it played for the SEC and it’ll be a banger leading into B1G games. 🏈

Though SEC fans associate the music with the “SEC on CBS” 3:30 p.m. ET games, the music dates back to CBS covering Super Bowl XXI in 1987.
For those that think the CBS music is just fro the SEC, I give you the intro to Super Bowl XXI all the way back to 1987.https://t.co/tRJWKP8shb

Erdahl joined CBS in 2014 and was the network’s lead reporter for SEC on CBS games with Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson. In July, she left that role to join the NFL Network as a host of Good Morning Football.
