ESPN College GameDay Headed to LSU-Oregon

ESPN has announced the first three dates for the College GameDay crew.

They're continuing their recent tradition of attending a neutral site game involving an SEC team on the opening weekend, but instead of going to Atlanta for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic, they going to Arlington for LSU-Oregon. That game is pretty much a no brainer as it's a matchup of two preseason top five teams. I know there will be plenty of LSU fans there, but I'll be interested to see how many Oregon fans make the trek down from the Pacific northwest.

Last year, GameDay actually visited SEC games on each of the first three weekends. They went to Atlanta for LSU-UNC, Tuscaloosa for Alabama-Penn State, and then Auburn for Auburn-Clemson. They won't follow a similar path this year as they will be going to Notre Dame-Michigan in Ann Arbor and then Oklahoma-Florida State in Tallahassee.

In related news, former Georgia great David Pollack will be joining Erin Andrews during the first hour of the show on ESPNU. I'm glad to see his role expanding with ESPN as he brings a lot more value to broadcasts than certain former Heisman winners from Michigan do.
