ESPN to visit campus
Observer Staff Report | Monday, October 8, 2012
Shortly after Notre Dame’s 41-3 victory over Miami in Soldier Field on Saturday, ESPN’s popular pregame show “College GameDay” announced it would be broadcasting live from Notre Dame’s campus before next Saturday’s game against Stanford. “GameDay” last visited campus in 2005 before then-No. 9 Notre Dame’s 31-34 loss to then-No. 1 USC.
“College GameDay” started broadcasting in 1987, when it was filmed at ESPN studios in Bristol, Conn. Its first on-location broadcast took place on Nov. 13, 1993 from Notre Dame’s campus before the so-called “Game of the Century,” when then-No. 1 Florida State visited then-No. 2 Notre Dame.
Notre Dame is ranked No. 7 this week, and Stanford is ranked No. 17.
The broadcast will begin at 9 a.m. on ESPNU and then continue from 10 a.m. to noon on ESPN. The location of the “GameDay” set on campus has not yet been announced.
