In related news, College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will air live Saturday from Augusta, GA, the home of the Masters.

The special edition of ESPN’s CGD will air live from Augusta National Golf Club. The broadcast will preview The PGA’s Masters Golf Tournament and will come specifically from the Par 3 course, the site of the Masters Par 3 Contest. The Masters Gold Tournament was postponed from its normal date in April to Saturday, Nov. 14 as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, ESPN and Sports Content, commented on this weekend’s broadcast in a prepared statement.

“Anytime College GameDay travels to a new destination it’s special, and the opportunity to be on the grounds of Augusta National Golf Club during the Masters is extraordinary,” said Pitaro.  “As this iconic event coincides with the college football season for the first time, we look forward to getting fans ready for a football Saturday, while also showcasing the Masters and the greatest golfers in the world.”

A “virtual pit’ will allow fans to take part in the broadcast from the safety of their own homes. Fans who want to take part in the ‘virtual pit’ can register for a chance for inclusion in the event here.

Rece Davis will anchor the broadcast. Five-time Emmy Award-winning analyst Kirk Herbstreit, Heisman Trophy winner and NFL MVP Desmond Howard, College Football Hall of Fame inductee and former Georgia All-American Georgia undergrad and MBA alum Maria Taylor, and Tom Rinaldi will join Davis for the broadcast. Additionally, Lee Corso will contribute remotely from his home.

Other contributors expected to appear on Saturday’s edition of College GameDay Built by The Home Depot are: Jen Lada, Pat McAfee, and Gene Wojciechowski. Along with appearing on Saturday’s broadcast, Rinaldi will also repot on The Masters for his 13th consecutive year.

This year is the first that ESPN’s College GameDay Built by The Home Depot has aired from Augusta. However, the program has previously welcomed some well-known college golf athletes. PGA golfer Ricky Fowler (former Oklahoma State golfer), and fellow PGA star Justin Thomas (former Alabama golfer) have appeared on the program.

ESPN will air the first and second rounds of The Masters tournament from 1 – 5:30 p.m. ET on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 12-13. ESPN will offer expanded PGA coverage this year from Nov. 9-15 on ESPN+, including exclusive practice round coverage on Nov. 10-11, and coverage of Holes 4,5, and 6 on all four days of the tournament. Additionally, SportsCenter will have special coverage from The Masters throughout the week of the tournament.

Georgia QB Stetson was 20-29 and had two tochdowns in the process. Arkansas’ Feleipe Franks meanwhile was 19-36. He had one touchdown and threw two interceptions.

Penalties abounded for both teams throughout the game. Georgia racked up 12 penalties for a total of 108 yards while Arkansas incurred 10 for 53 yards. Even despite its penalty load and play in the first half, the Bulldogs still managed to get things togeher in the second half and pull off the win.

AUBURN WEEK 1

The Auburn Tigers come in to tonight’s game on the heels of a 29-13 win over Kentucky in week 1. The teams were evenly matched throughout the game in terms of points per quarter although Kentucky dominated the game on both sides of the ball.

Kentucky racked up 145 net rushing yards versus Auburn’s 91 and pulled in 3.6 yards per rush while Auburn had 3.0 per yard. Kentucky totaled 239 net passing yards to Auburn’s 233. This is one of the rare areas in which Auburn came out on top, totaling 8.6 yards per pass versus 6.3.

In relation, Auburn totaled 5.7 yards per play overall while Kentucky totaled 4.9 yards per play.

Penalties hurt the Tigers, too. The team was charged with seven penalties for a total of 55 yards lost while Kentucky had four for 40 yards lost.

Penalties were a problem for Kansas State.  The team racked up 13 penalties for a total of 108 yards while Oklahoma totaled 75 yards from 10 penalties.

Oklahoma additionally recorded three interceptions, versus none for Kansas St., certainly helping Kansas State in its win.

 

IOWA STATE WEEK TWO

Iowa State comes into Saturday’s game on the heels of a 37-34 victory over another of its Big 12 opponents, the TCU Horned Frogs in the second game of its season.  The Cyclones dominated on the ground with 212 rushing yards to TCU’s 99 while the Horned Frogs controlled the passing game, throwing for a net passing total of 400 versus 211 for Iowa State.

ESPN’s Weekly ‘CGD’ Broadcast To Air Live Saturday From Miami

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will broadcast live Saturday from the campus of the University of Miami.

The network’s flagship college football program is scheduled to air from 9 a.m. to noon ET live from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL.  It will simulcast on ESPNU.

Rece Davis will anchor the broadcast.  Desmond Howard, David Pollack, and Chris “The Bear” Fallica will provide additional commentary.  Kirk Herbstreit and lee Corso will join the broadcast from their homes due to COVID-19 regulations.

The No. 12-ranked Hurricanes will host their Atlantic Coast Conference foes, the Florida State Seminoles on ABC’s weekly Saturday Night Football presented by Capital One broadcast.  Chris Fowler will have the call for the game while Herbstreit will provide additional commentary.  Reporter Molly McGrath will have all of the game’s key headlines.

Miami comes into Saturday night’s matchup on the heels of a 13-point win (47-34) over Louisville on Sept. 19 and a 17-point win (31-14) over the University of Alabama at Birmingham Sept. 10 in its season opener.

The Hurricanes outperformed the Blazers in almost every category in the teams’ Sept. 10 meeting, from first downs to average gain per play, to total yardage.  On the other hand, the Blazers recorded 205 passing yards in the game versus Miami’s total of 155 passing yards.

Louisville gave Miami a harder fight than UAB, performing almost as well as the Hurricanes from the first quarter to the last.  The Cardinals outdid the Hurricanes in Net  Rushing Yards, 209-160, but Miami’s Net Passing Yards total of 325 just barely beat Louisville’s total of 307.

In the battle of the QBs, Louisville went 16-36 in completions, outdoing Miami there, too, 18-30.  The Hurricanes also saw more impact in the penalties category than Louisville, racking up 11 penalties for a total of 89 yards.  Louisville, on the other hand, had seven penalties for a total of 70 yards.

Miami’s Third-Down efficiency rate of 6-13 outdid Louisville’s 4-14.  At the same time, Louisville was 3-4 in Fourth-Down efficiency.  Louisville also outdid Miami in total yardage, 516-485.

Florida State comes into Saturday night’s game hoping to rebound from a Week 1 loss to Georgia Tech.  The Seminoles lost the game 16-13.

Florida State struck early in the game, putting up 10 points in the first quarter, but the Yellow Jackets kept the Seminoles scoreless in the second and to only a field goal in the third quarter.  Georgia State meanwhile put up 16 points between the third and fourth quarters.

Georgia State outplayed Florida State through most of the team’s Sept. 12 game.  The Yellowjackets racked up a total of 438 yards versus Florida State’s 307 yards.  Georgia State totaled more passing yards than Florida State (277-198) and more rushing yards (161-109).  Even the two interceptions thrown by GT quarterback Jeff Simms weren’t enough to stop the Yellowjackets.

On the positive side for Florida State, Georgia State incurred more penalties and lost more yardage than Florida State throughout the game.  The Seminoles were charged with eight penalties for 55 yards while the Yellowjackets had a total of 10 penalties for a loss of 80 yards.

 

COLLEGE FOOTBALL PRIMETIME ON ESPN

Saturday night’s ACC matchup between the Hurricanes and Seminoles is just one of the games scheduled to air Saturday night.  Southeastern Conference foes No. 2 Alabama and unranked Missouri open the night at 7 p.m. ET on College Football Primetime on ESPN.  The game is ESPN’s College Football Primetime Samsung QLED 4K Game of the Week.

Sean McDonough will have the call for Saturday night’s SEC showdown.  Todd Blackledge, Todd McShay, and Allison Williams will provide additional commentary and reports.

With this week being the SEC’s official return to play, each team comes into Saturday’s game looking to start the season with a win.

 

SATURDAY SCHEDULE

While Saturday night’s college football schedule will be busy, the two games on tap for the evening are not the only games scheduled to air on the ESPN networks.  Saturday’s schedule kicks off at noon ET on ABC — following ESPN’s weekly College GameDay Built by The Home Depot broadcast (9 a.m. to noon ET) — with East Carolina University hosting No. 13 UCF in an AAC matchup.

ESPN Networks Announce Broadcast Schedule For Week 11 Of College Football’s 2018 Season

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN has announced its broadcast schedule for Week 11 of the 2018 college football season.

This week’s schedule features a number of games that have major playoff implications.  One of the most notable of the week’s games is an ACC matchup between undefeated No. 2 Clemson and No. 22 Boston College.  The headlining Saturday Night Football game is scheduled to air live at 8 p.m. Saturday on ABC.

ESPN’s College GameDay Built by the Home Depot will set up the game Saturday morning starting at 9 a.m.  It will broadcast live from the campus of Boston College.  Saturday’s broadcast marks the first time since 2009 that College GameDay Built by the Home Depot has aired from Boston College.

The Eagles are 4-1 in ACC play and second to Clemson in the ACC’s Atlantic Division.  The matchup is critical in Clemson’s search for a division (and conference) title, and for the team’s hopes for a spot in this year’s College Football playoffs.

Other key matchups featured in this week’s schedule are No. 7 Oklahoma taking on Oklahoma State at 3:30 p.m. on ABC and No. 8 Washington State on the road against Colorado at the same time on ESPN.  Both games have their own importance to this year’s college football playoffs impacts.

Also, if the Sooners and Cougars each win their games, they will play in their respective conference title games.  A win for either team additionally puts each group in good position to be considered for the playoffs.

Georgia hosts Auburn at 7 p.m. on ESPN in yet another key matchup for Week 11. ESPN2 will feature yet another big game at noon as UCF and Navy (AAC) face off in Florida.  The Knights have the nation’s longest winning streak while the Midshipmen are coming off a loss to Cincinnati in Week 10, so they will be hungry to get back in the “W” column, and to stop the Knights’ streak.

The full schedule of this week’s games is noted below.
