College GameDay is coming to Louisville

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:

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?

      But will win a bunch of games because they’re schedule is trash. Somehow they avoided Clemson.

      They avoided Clemson…and UK. Aaand, the geniuses are ranking them ahead of us…the one year we don’t get to kick their butts.

    Cant wait till the SEC starts so they can come to Lexington . I’m sure Cal will be the guess picker this year at kroger field.

      The advantage of playing in the ACC. They only have one great team. SEC football is a death march through ten games, at least seven of which will be difficult. Voters in polls never take difficulty into perspective except for top spots. A 7-3 record in horrible league will get more votes that 6-5 in the SEC. more than half the country hates the SEC because of their obvious superiority

    Loserville is a disease. If the ACC teams can run the ball down their throats, at least half of what we do, it’ll be a beautiful site.

    Will they actually talk about football?

    Who can blame them for doing so? They have won a Sugar and Orange bowls recently. Plus they’ve had a Heisman winner. Kentucky won’t ever again do any of these things and certainly will never have a Heisman winner.

      But, UK can claim the 1950 national title. And before there is any crap about that being fake, let’s look at a few facts. Back then, the national champion was decided by the AP vote. The AP named Oklahoma the champion; but, a bit premature…before the Sugar Bowl. Can’t blame them really, the Sooners were undefeated and had not lost in three years; and it was assumed they would beat UK…but they didn’t.
      In 1990 Jeff Sagarin dusted off his computer, and declared UK the ’50 champion; but, that’s beside the point; UK does not claim titles not won on the gridiron or the hardwood, like UNC claims Helms’ titles. So would you rather win the title on a vote by hack sportswriters, or would you rather win on the field of battle? Obviously, the AP didn’t learn their lesson; the very next year their No. 1 champion, Tennessee, lost to Maryland in the Sugar Bowl.
