Lancaster native Gary Patterson will be in the college football spotlight Thursday.
Patterson, an Atlantic Coast Conference official, will call the BCS national championship game at Dolphin Stadium in Miami where Florida meets Oklahoma.
The game, which kicks off at 8 p.m., will be carried on Charlotte Fox 18 WCCB, Ch. 11 on the Lancaster Comporium cable.
Officiating crews for college bowl games are done on a rotating basis and Patterson’s crew landed the Orange Bowl. Patterson is the back judge in the ACC crew handling the game.
