Keith Jackson was one of sports' great voices, and one of its most popular play-by-play announcers. He was considered the voice of college football by several generations or watchers.
Jackson died Friday. He was 89.
He began calling college football games for ABC Sports when it acquired the broadcast rights for NCAA football in 1966.
He also worked NFL and NBA games, World Series, Winter and Summer Olympics and auto racing. For the job, he traveled to 31 countries for ABC's Wide World of Sports.
