After much speculation about GAMEDAY coming to Louisville for the September 17th game vs. Florida State, it’s finally official. No word if the game time has changed or where they will set up the studio but I assume all the details will be released on or before Monday evening. Official release below the videos under click more.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – ESPN’s College GameDay Built by the Home Depot will broadcast from the University of Louisville for the first time in school history Saturday, showcasing a top-15 matchup between Louisville and Florida State.
The Cardinals, currently ranked No. 13 in the latest AP Poll, welcome the third-ranked Seminoles for a noon kickoff on ABC on Sept. 17 in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
“We’re excited to have ESPN College GameDay coming to Louisville,” UofL Vice President and Director of Athletics Tom Jurich said. “The show’s presence here is really a great tribute to our football program. I know our fans will embrace all of the pageantry surrounding Saturday’s event and carry that enthusiasm into the stadium to support our team during the game.”
The team of Rece Davis, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack, and Samantha Ponder, along with contributors Tom Rinaldi and Gene Wojciechowski, will conduct the popular Saturday morning show from a location to be determined.
In its 30th season and 24th on the road, the award-winning College GameDay pregame show originates each Saturday from the site of the day’s best game or the game with the most compelling storylines.
Information for fans interested in attending the live telecast will be released at a later date. Log on towww.GoCards.com or follow the Cardinals’ football Twitter (@UofLFootball) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/UofLFootball) accounts for updates.
