Auburn, Ala. - Auburn will host ESPN College GameDay on Saturday, Nov. 26 prior to the Auburn-Alabama game. The traveling pre-game show which features ESPN commentators Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard and Erin Andrews, will make its third appearance at Auburn in the last four years and fifth appearance on campus since 2004.
It will be GameDay's seventh visit to Auburn during its 25-year existence and will mark the 13th time that Auburn has played in the on-site game. The last time GameDay visited Auburn was on Sept. 18, 2010 when the Tigers hosted Clemson.
The show airs live on Saturdays from 8-9 a.m. CT on ESPNU/ESPNU HD and from 9-11 a.m. on ESPN/ESPN HD. The show will also air live hits from Auburn on Friday. The GameDay set location will be the same as last year, on the Campus Green east of Jordan-Hare Stadium.
GameDay's other previous visits to the Auburn campus have been in 2008 (vs. LSU), 2006 (vs. Florida), 2004 (vs. Georgia), 1997 (vs. Florida) and 1995. Its debut on the Plains was on Nov. 18, 1995, when Auburn hosted Alabama.
The Auburn-Alabama game will be televised by CBS with kickoff slated for 2:30 p.m. CT at Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
