It was a busy weekend for Gus Johnson, who called the Oklahoma vs. Nebraska game on Saturday and an NFL game on Sunday.
As always, college football fans enjoyed his calls during the Sooners’ win over the Huskers. Johnson went especially crazy for an interception by Oklahoma’s defense – one of the top plays of the young season.
It’s been a while since the NFL world was treated to a Gus Johnson performance, though. Unsurprisingly, he did not disappoint.
Johnson and Aqib Talib were on the call for Sunday’s game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Minnesota Vikings. The Cardinals won in thrilling fashion, as the Vikings missed a game-winning field goal as time expired.
Talib shared a cool message for Johnson following the game.

The Cardinals and the Vikings delivered a lot of action, too.
Gus Johnson starts calling NFL games again and there’s 47 points in a half capped by a 62-yard field goal. Electric.

On the field, the Cardinals improved to 2-0 on the season with the win, while the Vikings dropped to 0-2 on the year with the loss.
Hopefully we’ll get more fun Gus Johnson games moving forward this season.
