NEW ORLEANS -- Georgia football radio announcer Larry Munson says he will not do the play-by-play for the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports the 85-year-old had planned to call his first game this season outside the state for the Georgia and Hawaii matchup but now he will not make the trip.

Georgia athletic director Claude Felton says Munson decided not to do the game.

Health woes forced the longtime play-by-play man to work only home games this season and the game at Georgia Tech.
