Gus Johnson was hyped about buff referee Mike Defee in Texas-Oklahoma game

Sporting News

Fox Sports' college football play-by-play announcer Gus Johnson is one of the best in the business today, and with good reason. His infectious personality, genuine excitement and over-the-top calls makes the games he's covering that much better.

Johnson showed that infectious excitement again on Saturday as he called the Texas-Oklahoma game in the Red River Showdown. Except, he wasn't excited about either of the football teams — no, he was hyped at how "jacked" head official Mike Defee is.

Of course, this isn't the first time Defee's buff physique has made news. He exploded across Twitter during the 2017 College Football Playoff championship game between Alabama and Clemson, so he's well-known in online college football media circles.

Still, hearing Johnson yell, "He's jacked!" still makes us smile. Keep doing what you're doing, Gus.
