ESPN superanchor and University of Maryland alum Scott Van Pelt announced via Twitter that he will be broadcasting Sportscenter live from the Xfinity Center in College Park, MD on Nov. 17. UM faces off against Georgetown that night, reigniting a rivalry that has waited over 20 years to see the two teams battle again.
Both teams are expected to be strong this season, and it should be a raucous atmosphere to say the least. SVP basically made an ultimatum to his boss saying, “I kind of told the head guy here before our show ever started, on November 17th either I’m not doing a show, or we’re going to do the show there,” Van Pelt told Jeff Ermann of Inside Maryland Sports. “Because I will be in that building that night.”
