Sunday October 1, 2006ESPN's College GameDay To Originate From The Swamp Saturday

Gainesville, FL

ESPN announced on Sunday that its College GameDay show will emanate from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium this weekend, the site of the Florida-LSU game in The Swamp. The fifth-ranked Gators (5-0/3-0 SEC) and the ninth-ranked Tigers (4-1/1-1 SEC) will meet at 3:30 p.m. on CBS Sports.

 

Florida will be making its 22nd appearance on GameDay, a figure that leads the nation. The Gators are 13-8 (.619) when they are featured in the on-site game and will be making their first appearance on the program since Oct. 29, 2005, a 14-10 victory over Georgia in Jacksonville. This will be the program's first appearance in Gainesville since Nov. 29, 2003, for the annual matchup against Florida State.

 

Since 1993, College GameDay has been television's definitive and comprehensive college football studio show and has traveled most weeks on college Saturday's to the day's big game and has been met by large and enthusiastic crowds. The two-hour program with host Chris Fowler and analysts Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit airs live on ESPN each Saturday at 10 a.m. The show covers all college football angles, issues and game previews.
