ESPN's College Gameday returns for its 36th season this Saturday.
The show will feature a lot of familiar faces, such as Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and Chris "The Bear" Falica.
This year's season of College Gameday will have some newcomers as well.
Three weeks ago, the show officially welcomed Peloton instructor and sports reporter Jess Sims into the family.
"I'm so excited to join the GameDay crew as the show not only celebrates all the on-field action,
But it also highlights the passionate communities that surround the game,” Sims said via the ESPN press room.
"It's such a great opportunity to get back to my roots in college sports and I can't wait to meet the incredible athletes and fans
And explore these campuses and cities that eat, sleep and breathe their hometown teams."
The Sims will be the on-site reporter and personality for College Gameday starting week 1.
Sims joined Peloton in 2018.
She teaches running, walking, bootcamp, strength and stretching classes.
In the last few years, Sims has amassed a lot of following on Instagram.
As of this week, she had 440,000 followers
In addition to his career as a Peloton instructor, Sims has worked with the New York Liberty as an in-arena host and sideline reporter.
Sims' career as a sideline reporter really depends on how this season of College Gameday goes.
College Gameday airs this Saturday at 10 a.m. on ESPN.
