Fox Sports announcer Gus Johnson was forced to leave Saturday’s Nebraska-Oklahoma game at halftime due to a mysterious illness.
After coming back from the half, Joel Klatt announced that he was flying solo due to Johnson being “under the weather.”
Gus Johnson got sick at halftime — unless he was playing hurt during the first half — so it's the Joel Klatt solo show for the second half of OU-Nebraska
