ESPN College GameDay Is Coming To The Big Ten Championship

ESPN’s College GameDay crew announced this morning that it will travel to Indianapolis next Saturday and spend its day outside Lucas Oil Stadium covering the Big Ten Championship game between Penn State and Wisconsin.

College GameDay hasn’t been to a game including Penn State since 2010 when it traveled to The Shoe to see Ohio State beat Penn State 38-24 and earlier that same season when it traveled to Tuscaloosa to see Alabama beat Penn State 24-3. College GameDay hasn’t been to Happy Valley since 2009 when Penn State played Iowa in Beaver Stadium.

College GameDay typically picks the most exciting game, the game with the biggest rivalry, or the game with the most ridding on it and broadcasts live all day on gameday. The crew, including closet Penn State fan Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Rece Davis, Desmond Howard, and others, talks about all the match ups in college football that day but focuses on the game they’re at, providing commentary, predictions, and history of the match-up. The team doesn’t decide where they’ll be until the game is less than a week away.

Here’s the games College GameDay has traveled to so far this year, including the location and outcome of the game:

Penn State and Wisconsin will kick off at 8 p.m. (but more realistically, 8:17 p.m.) and the game will be aired on FOX. If you’re planning to make the trip to Indy, student tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 7 a.m., but you better get there quickly because some students have been camping out at the BJC since 11:30 last night.
