Placeholder Image

ATHENS - ESPN's College GameDay will be televised live from the University of Georgia's Honors Residential Community quad Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. The quad is located between the Myers, Rutherford, Mary Lyndon and Soule dormitories on the UGA campus and is approximately 250 yards from Sanford Stadium.

GameDay also will have segments airing from the site on ESPN and its family of networks on Friday afternoon and throughout the rest of the day on Saturday.

Due to the staging of GameDay, the quad will not be available for tailgaters to set up prior to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Approximately half of the quad will be utilized by ESPN throughout Saturday. The remaining 50 percent will return to its traditional usage on game Saturdays beginning at 1 p.m.

Fans are welcome to view the show live on Saturday morning. Security will begin to allow spectators into a barricaded section behind the GameDay set beginning at 7 a.m. Once filled, additional spectators will be allowed in additional areas behind the set, which will feature the Myers dorm as its backdrop.

Co-hosts Chris Fowler, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit will anchor GameDay, which is visiting Athens in association with Saturday's 7:45 p.m. ESPN nationally televised SEC showdown between No. 3 Georgia (4-0, 1-0 SEC) and No. 8 Alabama (4-0, 1-0). The contest will be the highest-ranked matchup in Sanford Stadium in nearly a quarter of a century, since No. 3 Auburn defeated No. 4 Georgia, 13-7, on Nov. 12, 1983.
