Yet another college football season is here, which means it’s time for Kirk Herbstreit to be one of the busiest men in the world.

He’ll be heading across the country this season for ESPN’s College GameDay. However, he has another job that will have him traveling just as much this year as he works with Al Michaels for Amazon.

Herbstreit played his college football for the Buckeyes, but there’s another reason Ohio State is important to him.

The longtime ESPN college football analyst is married to Allison Herbstreit. The happy couple were married in 1998 after initially meeting in Columbus.

They have four children together – two of whom played for Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers. Jake Herbstreit has opted to transfer to his father’s alma mater. His younger brother, Zak, also joined him at Ohio State as a preferred walk-on for the Buckeyes.

Herbstreit and company lived in Ohio before moving to Nashville for a few years. However, they decided to make a return to Ohio for a special reason – at least part time.

The youngest of the four boys, Chase, plays football for Cincinnati St. Xavier High School.

The Herbstreits are an incredibly busy family with Herbie’s schedule and all the boys.

Allison and Kirk make it all work, though.
