After spending the weekend in Seattle for the Pac-12 clash between Washington and USC, ESPN College GameDay is heading east.
On Sunday morning, ESPN announced College GameDay will take place live from Kalamazoo, Michigan for next weekend’s MAC battle between the unbeaten No. Western Michigan Broncos and visiting Buffalo Bulls.
It marks the first time since 2003 that College GameDay will be featuring some MACtion. The last time it happened was on Oct. 25, 2003, for a meeting between No. 12 Northern Illinois and No. 23 Bowling Green. Interestingly enough, in that game, Western Michigan head coach PJ Fleck was a wide receiver for Northern Illinois, which went on to lose.
Fleck will be hoping for a better outcome this time around.
The announcement was made on Twitter.

ESPN College GameDay will air at 9 a.m. ET next Saturday morning. With the rarity of ESPN coming to a MAC campus, you know the fans will show up in droves.
A kickoff time for the game between Western Michigan and Buffalo at Waldo Stadium has yet to be announced.
