ESPN’s College GameDay Built by The Home Depot – college football’s longest running and most celebrated pregame show – will return to Tallahassee, Fla. this weekend for the Seminoles Top 25 match-up with Clemson. This is the second straight year the key ACC game has been featured by ESPN’s flagship college football show.
This will mark the 28th time the Seminoles have played a game with GameDay in attendance. The Seminoles have a long history with GameDay, dating to the program’s first “road show” appearance, which came Nov. 13, 1993 when No. 1 FSU visited No. 2 Notre Dame in the “Game of the Century” showdown in South Bend, Ind. Along the way, the ‘Noles have won 13 GameDay contests after opening the season with a win at the Cowbos Classic. That evened the Seminoles record at 13-13 with GameDay in attendance.
The weekly three-hour Emmy Award-winning show (Saturday 9 a.m.-noon ET) is hosted by Chris Fowler, the GameDay team consists of analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack with reporting by Samantha Ponder, Tom Rinaldi, Scott Van Pelt and Gene Wojciechowski.
This week’s show will feature the 243th headgear selection for Corso who has picked Florida State 17 times with a 11-6 record.
