ESPN’s premier college football show is coming to the Bluegrass, but they won’t be stopping in Lexington. Instead, College GameDay is heading down the road to Louisville, where they’ll preview the ACC opener between UofL and Miami at Cardinal Stadium. Kickoff between the Cardinals and Hurricanes is now set for 7:30 p.m. next Saturday and will air on ABC. It’s the third time ESPN’s traveling football show will land in Card nation.
The weekly show is hosted by Rece Davis, who is joined by analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Maria Taylor and David Pollack. Chris Fowler, Herbstreit, and Taylor will stay on site to call the game.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, fans will not be permitted to attend the show. Tailgating is also prohibited. However, fans (or rivals…) can still submit pictures of their signs and share them with the hashtag #GameDaySigns on Twitter or Instagram:
. @CollegeGameDay signs are worth 1,000 words and occasionally turn into cultural icons (looking at you duct-taped banana)!
Post your signs on Twitter or Instagram this season with #GameDaySigns, and I’ll share the best ones every week.

The site selection makes sense based on next week’s slew of games. The Virginia-Virginia Tech game has been postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak at Virginia Tech, and the SEC will not have started its season yet. Fellow ACC games are Syracuse vs. Pittsburgh and Wake Forest vs. NC State (and Wake Forest hosted the crew this week). The only Big 12 team slated to play next weekend is Oklahoma State (hosting Tulsa). Louisville vs. Miami it is.
Did the BBN just become Miami fans?
