ESPN ‘School GameDay’ is coming to Ann Arbor for Michigan-Ohio State

As if the game on Saturday wasn’t big enough – ESPN has just announced that it will bring College GameDay to Michigan.

The popular cable sports network will host its three-hour tailgate show on Saturday morning in Ann Arbor before the showdown in Michigan and Ohio on Saturday (noon, FOX).

No word yet on a location, but ESPN personalities Rece Davis, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard, David Pollack and Kirk Herbstreit will be broadcast live on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The game will feature two top 10 teams with many at stake, including the Big Ten East Division crown and a trip to the conference title game.

As Jim Harbaugh said after Michigan’s 59:18 win over Maryland on Saturday, it’s “for all the marbles”.

The Wolverines (10-1, 7-1 Big Ten) entered the game on Saturday in sixth place in the latest AP Top 25 poll, and have a three-game winning streak after losing in Maryland. Their only defeat came in Michigan State with four points.

Meanwhile, Ohio State (10-1, 8-0 Big Ten) moved up to second after a convincing 56-7 win over the Spartans on Saturday. The Buckeyes’ only loss came to Oregon during the second week of the season. They boast the nation’s No. 1 for points earned and yards won.

This marks the first live broadcast of GameDay in Ann Arbor since October 13, 2018, when the show was in town for Michigan’s win over Wisconsin. The crew was present at the Michigan-Ohio State game in Columbus in 2019.
