College Gameday's Coming For Nebraska Football...Via Radio

ESPN and ESPN Radio announced today that their College Gameday show staring Matt Barrie, Brad Edwards, and Trevor Matich will be coming to Lincoln on September 20 in conjunction with the Nebraska football game against the Miami Hurricanes.

According to the press release from ESPN, this will be the radio version of College Gameday’s seventeenth  year and “features previews of the weekend’s upcoming games, highlights from the previous week and key interviews from the college football world.”

The radio Gameday show will broadcast nationally from 11:00 A.M. until 6:00 P.M. central time. Prior to the radio College Gameday show, ESPN Radio will simulcast the television version of College Gameday featuring host Chris Fowler along with analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard.

The last time the television version of College Gameday came to the turf of Memorial Stadium was 2007. The University of Southern California Trojans beat the Huskers 49-31 in the primetime matchup.


The ESPN Radio announcement begs the question if the set and crew will be joining the broadcast.

Some other key college football games scheduled for Setepmber 20 to look out for would include Oklahoma at West Virginia, Clemson at Florida State and Florida at Alabama.

ESPN knows Husker fans will turn out en masse for College Gameday so it wouldn’t be surprisng if they decided to come to Lincoln for the high profile matchup between two of college football’s historical powers.

Of course, if Miami stumbles against Louisville or the Huskers fall to Fresno State, all bets are off.
