For many college football fans, Saunders was a stable on Saturdays during the fall, providing in-studio updates and leading halftime shows. Saunders also shined on the The Sports Reporters.
Here he is on why the Army-Navy game is special to him. While the annual huge rivalry games and conference championship games often grab the most attention, Saunders looked forward to the Army-Navy game more than any other every season.
