BY foxsports • September 27, 2012

Erin Andrews and Steve Kerr will join Hall of Fame Broadcaster Dick Enberg to call the “Battle on the Midway” basketball game aboard the historic USS Midway aircraft carrier from San Diego on Nov. 9 beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

The game will be shown on FOX Sports San Diego and will feature San Diego State vs. Syracuse in the season opener for both teams.

“We’re thrilled to have this first-class team announcing the game,” said Henry Ford, senior vice president and general manager of FOX Sports San Diego. “Viewers can expect to be treated to the basketball showcase between San Diego State and Syracuse and enjoy a wonderful tribute to our military professionals.”

The matchup features two of the winningest active coaches in college basketball -- Syracuse's Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim and San Diego State’s Steve Fisher -- both of whom have won a national championship.

The Orange, champions of the Big East regular season, finished its season at 34-3 after an Elite 8 appearance in the NCAA tournament.

The Aztecs are coming off a 26-8 season and are the reigning back-to-back regular-season Mountain West champions.
