ATHENS -- When the SEC officials take the field at the annual University of Georgia G-Day game Saturday, they will have some help.
Six additional ESPN commentators and an espn.com writer will be on the field shadowing and participating as referees throughout the day.
Kevin Carter, Chris Doering, Brock Huard, Barrett Jones, Greg McElroy, Maria Taylor and ESPN.com's Ed Aschoff, will take fans inside prep meetings, referee positioning & roles, as well as game calls.
The SEC Coordinator of Football Officials Steve Shaw will serve as the game's "white hat". He will be wired and also wear a head cam for additional officiating viewpoints. SEC Network + plans to stream a singular Ump Cam view throughout, available on the ESPN app and WatchESPN.
Traditional game coverage on SEC Network will be provided by Dave Neal and Matt Stinchcomb along with Maria Taylor on the field.
