ESPN’s flagship college football show will come live from North Carolina’s “Queen City” this weekend.
College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will air Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon ET live on ESPN and ESPNU from Bank of America Stadium, the home of the Carolina Panthers for its weekly broadcast. Saturday’s show will preview the 2020 ACC Championship between No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 3 Clemson.
One of the biggest topics on the day will likely be Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly’s comments today that the team might not play in the College Football Championship if the families of the players are not permitted to attend. Kelly’s comments have created a firestorm throughout the college football world.
Rece Davis will anchor Saturday’s broadcast. The team of Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack, Maria Taylor and Chris “The Bear” Fallica will join Davis for the broadcast. Lee Corso will join the broadcast live remotely from his home.
The ACC Championship is just one of the games set for Saturday’s day-long series of games that the group will preview. No. 11 Oklahoma and No. 7 Iowa State will face off in the Dr. Pepper Big 12 Championship Game at noon.
