Aug. 12, 2010

Charlotte, N.C. – Raycom Sports’ Emmy Award-winning summer television series, “Havoline Football Saturdays in the South,” continues the seventh season with episode five this weekend. The series, with six one-hour episodes, is hosted by Tim Brando and syndicated in 65 markets throughout the greater southeast and Atlantic coast.

Last June, NC State’s Nate Irving had his life turned upside down. The linebacker was traveling back to Raleigh from home one night when he lost control of his car and flipped off the road. His car totaled, Nate woke up in the hospital the next day. Returning to the field this year, the Wolfpacker talks about being away from the game, rehabbing his broken bones and reliving that fateful night.

ACC Football announcer Steve Martin sits down with former Miami quarterback Gino Torretta, the 1992 Heisman Trophy winner. Torretta relives winning two national titles, playing for a third, his Heisman season and whether he thinks the swagger has returned to the ‘Canes.
