Pat McAfee will be a full-time member of ESPN’s “College GameDay,” The Post has learned.

The former punter turned multimedia performer will be on the show this Saturday from Austin, where No. 1 Alabama will face Texas.

ESPN and Fox are in an emerging battle for college football supremacy. This Saturday, for example, Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff” will also be on site in Austin. McAfee has made appearances on “GameDay” in the past.

ESPN declined comment, while McAfee did not immediately return a message.

Before Marchand’s report dropped, McAfee teased a big announcement on Twitter.

McAfee has worked college games for years on ESPN 2 and he’s basically everywhere on TV these days but it’s still awesome to see that he’ll be on College GameDay where he belongs.
