ESPN’s College Gameday will be making its first appearance at the KFC Yum! Center in the 2012-13 season! They will be in town when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish come to Louisville. The date has not been announced yet, but obviously it will be on a Saturday during conference play, so likely January or February.
The last time College Gameday was in Louisville was February 9, 2008 when the Cards battled the #6 ranked Georgetown Hoyas in Freedom Hall. The Cards won the game 59-51 and were led by David Padgett with 18 points. This was the first true “white-out” game that the Cardinals hosted, and the game that Rick Pitino famously sweated through his white suit and had to change clothes at halftime.
