The Monday Lineup: 8 ESPN moments from the weekend

Some of what you may have missed over the weekend from ESPN:

1. Jon Gruden’s “Gruden Extra” interview with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers first-round pick, quarterback Josh Freeman, will air during the Monday Night Countdown pregame (ESPN, 6:30 p.m. ET). Freeman will make his first start for the Vikings on Monday Night Football against Eli Manning and the New York Giants (8:25 p.m. ET, ESPN, ESPN Deportes and WatchESPN).

2. ESPN’s Tedy Bruschi was honored by his alma mater, the University of Arizona, this weekend during halftime of Saturday’s Utah-Arizona game in recognition of Bruschi’s College Football Hall of Fame induction. His jersey was retired by the Wildcats.

3. SportsCenter anchor, Lindsay Czarniak, was back on familiar turf this weekend as she reported from Washington for the Redskins’ 45-41 win over Chicago. Look for a special “Pick 6 with Lindsay” later this week on Front Row.

4. ESPN’s Dave O’Brien was on the local call for the Boston Red Sox Game 6 ALCS win and his talents never go unnoticed.

5. ABC once again outdid itself with the “open” to Florida State’s huge win over Clemson.

6. As usual, John Buccigross, was a “big shot” this weekend. Which reminds us: Don’t miss the TV debut of “Big Shot,” the next 30 for 30 on the docket (Tuesday, ESPN, 8 p.m.)

7. Don’t forget, college basketball season is just around the corner.

8. “Definitely worth the trip! As an Indiana native and loyal Colts fan it was with mixed emotions that we welcomed Peyton Manning back to the house he built. We were happy to see him, but much happier to see the Colts score the big win!” — Jill Frederickson, Sr. Coordinating Producer, ESPN
