All aboard: College GameDay going to Oklahoma for Top 10 ABC showdown



College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will originate from Norman, Okla., next week, the site of next Saturday’s prime time matchup of No. 5 Notre Dame (7-0) at No. 9 Oklahoma (5-1), which will be televised nationally on ABC (8 p.m. ET).

College GameDay, in its 26th year, will be making its seventh all-time visit to the home of the Sooners and its first since November 22, 2008. Oklahoma is 5-1 with GameDay on its campus and has won the last five such games. The lone loss came in GameDay‘s first visit to Norman on September 30. 1995 (Colorado won, 38-17).

Undefeated Notre Dame is coming off Saturday’s home win against BYU (17-14), while the Sooners beat Kansas (52-7).

Lee Corso is 4-1 with his Sooners headgear picks (having not picked for the 1995 game). The lone time he picked against Oklahoma while in Norman was on September 29, 2001 when Corso went with Kansas State, which wound up falling, 38-37. 

Oklahoma has never been ranked lower than No. 10 nationally for any of its 12 total GameDay appearances.

College GameDay will air live at 9 a.m. on ESPNU and 10 a.m. on ESPN with host Chris Fowler, analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack, and host/reporter Samantha Steele and Tom Rinaldi. Brent Musburger and Herbstreit will call the Notre Dame-Oklahoma game that evening with sideline reporter Heather Cox.
