Byington follows in the footsteps of Pam Ward and Beth Mowins as a few of the first women to do play-by-play for college football games.
Byington made history when she called the Northwestern-Bowling Green game last weekend in the Wildcats 49-7 blowout of the Falcons, but has been with the Big Ten Network since its inception in 2007.
While Ward no longer calls the sport, Mowins made headlines two weeks ago for being the first women to call a nationally televised NFL game, and the first woman to call an NFL game since 1987.
Georgia Southern (0-2) might not come off as a terrifying and imposing figure, however the Hoosiers (1-1) could potentially have some issues with the Eagles.
Georgia Southern is one of seven FBS teams to run the triple-option offense. And as the Big Ten saw last weekend with Michigan struggling in the first half against the triple-option savvy Air Force, even the best defenses in the nation have trouble with the triple-option.
Indiana and Georgia Southern kick off at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23.
