It was a busy weekend for Kirk Herbstreit.

The longtime football analyst made his Thursday Night Football debut for Amazon, calling a preseason game with Al Michaels for the streaming network.

Saturday morning, Herbstreit was a part of the first "College GameDay" episode of the fall.

It's set to be a truly busy season for Herbstreit, who is covering both the NFL and college football for Amazon and ESPN, respectively.

Thankfully for Herbstreit, he has a good system of support back at home in Nashville.
