(Newser) – Reporter Erin Andrews put the summer’s naked-video scandal behind her tonight, returning to the sidelines for ESPN’s first college football telecast of the season. David Whitley was observing her every move during the South Carolina-North Carolina State tilt for AOL’s Fanhouse blog, and notes, “She appears comfortable with a microphone despite the six-week layoff.”

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier is the halftime interview. “Spurrier grimaces, apparently unaware that he’s the lucky winner of historic EA Lotto—first coach to be interviewed AV (After Video),” Whitley writes. “I swear I see Dr. Phil on the TV doing a halftime report,” he adds. “Please tell me he’s talking about his Britney Spears intervention and how Andrews can learn from it.”
