Admit it—if you've watched "Sport Science" then you definitely had your mind stuffed with information. And, you definitely learned something too.

But, on Saturday, if you watch the new "Disney XD ESPN Sport Science," your mind might just explode (in a good way).

Disney XD is launching a new TV series chock full of guest appearances, sports myths and mysteries and lots of action. At 11 AM ET/PT the series will premiere, and the premiere will include 49ers star Vernon Davis.

What exactly will Davis be doing on the show? Well, you can find out how much force, speed and strength goes into his routes as well as learn mind-boggling statistics. He will be roughing up a dummy to measure the impact he makes, and he will also display the skills that make him an elite tight end.

However, Davis isn't the only star athlete appearing on the show. Larry Fitzgerald, Jahvid Best, Nomar Garciaparra, Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee, Brittney Griner and many other stars will also bring their talents to the Sport Science studios. John Brenkus and Leo Howard will co-host the show, which is designed to test the limits of human athletic capabilities.

McGee and Howard will put their incredible basketball and (hopefully) shot-blocking talents on display, Fitzgerald will portray his pass-catching ability, Best will show the world his speed, and the rest of the athletes will put their talents on display.

Garciaparra and freestyle skier Simon Dumont will also star in the premiere. Dumont will show the world how he keeps track of which end of his ski is in the air during a flip, while Garciaparra will test his baseball talents and show how he keeps track of a fastball traveling 90 miles per hour.

Oh, and Howard (who is a black-belt martial artist) will try to hit a 90 mile per hour pitch. I'm assuming watching that alone will satisfy you enough. 

Right after you finish reading this article, turn on your TV and record this show. Or, just watch it live. You don't want to miss out on all the madness, and you don't want to be left out when everyone is raving about the athletic capability of Davis and many more athletes.

Here's a brief video that breaks down the show and what will happen on it, zeroing in mainly on Davis' appearance in the premiere.
