The 2018 college football season kicked into full swing on Saturday, Sept. 1 with a busy week of marquee matchups across the nation. For the opening weekend of the season, ESPN’s College GameDay will be heading to South Bend for a clash between Notre Dame and Michigan. In Week 2, a meeting between the Texas A&M Aggies and Clemson Tigers headlined the schedule. Now, it’s another top 15 clash set to play host to the ESPN College GameDay crew.
Following another busy week of action across the nation, College GameDay announced it will be heading to Fort Worth, Texas.
The GameDay crew — which features Rece Davis, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack, and Maria Taylor — will be hosting the show from the TCU campus ahead of the No. 15 Horned Frogs’ meeting with the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes.
Despite GameDay being on the TCU campus in Fort Worth, the game is set to take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.
TCU will enter the game at 2-0 after steamrolling Southern University in the season-opener, 55-7, and blowing out SMU in Week 2, 42-12. The Buckeyes, meanwhile, have had no trouble in the first two weeks of the season with big wins over Oregon State (77-31) and Rutgers (52-3).
It will mark the seventh appearance on the flagship college football pregame show for the Horned Frogs and the second time that they have hosted. If TCU can pull off an upset of the Buckeyes, they will maintain a perfect record when appearing on GameDay; currently 6-0. Ohio State, meanwhile, while be making its 41st College GameDay appearance — one short of Alabama’s record 42 appearances — with an overall record of 27-13 when appearing on the show. If Ohio State picks up a win, they will hold the most victories for schools appearing on College GameDay in the show’s history.
Kickoff between the two programs is set for 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
