Columbia, SC (WLTX) - They're coming to our city.
ESPN's "College Gameday" will be in Columbia next Saturday for the Gamecocks' matchup against number five Georgia.
As college football fans know, "Gameday" picks the game they think is of greatest interest to broadcast live from this week--evidently, they believe USC's SEC East showdown with the Bulldogs is it next week.
The three-hour show begins at 9 a.m. It features Chris Fowler, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack and Samantha Steele.
The show will broadcast from the Horseshoe on campus.
"The Horseshoe is one of the best sites we've ever had for College GameDay," said Lee Fitting, College GameDay Senior Coordinating Producer in a statement. "The picturesque collegiate backdrop creates the perfect setting for the show. Given the fact that a highly-ranked Georgia team is coming to town will only add to the excitement of Saturday morning."
This is the sixth time Gameday has come to Columbia--the last time, USC upset number one Alabama in October of 2010.
Gametime for USC-Georgia is 7 p.m.
