ESPN College GameDay will be broadcasting live from one of the most exciting matchups of bowl season.
Late Monday night, ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit responded to a fan on social media to confirm the premier pregame show will be setting up shop in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day between the No. 2 Oklahoma Sooners and No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs are currently 1.5-point favorites over the Sooners, despite Oklahoma being the higher ranked team and being led by Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield.
Let the anticipation begin.
Yes we will. https://t.co/SgWluYPlDB
