Last year, I put together an in-depth look at week by week predictions for where ESPN College Gameday may broadcast during football season. My predictions didn't fair so well early on; although, the tragedy at Virginia Tech did cause the first three weeks to get shuffled around. Had that not happened, I think my batting percentage would've been much higher.
I'm not planning to do an in depth series this year because (A) I'm not sure I care enough and (B) It took too long. However, here's my poorly researched shot at where I think College Gameday will broadcast over the first half of the season. (This was prompted by Barnhart's article on Monday in the AJC that mentioned this topic).
- Week 1: Alabama vs. Clemson (ESPN/ABC)
Week 2: Miami at Florida (ESPN)
Week 3: Ohio State at Southern Cal (ABC)
Week 4: UGA at Arizona State (ABC) - I called this one last November.
Week 5: VT at Nebraska (ABC) Outside shot of Bama at UGA if the Tide and Dawgs are undefeated at this point, and the game ends up as a night ESPN telecast.
Week 6: Ohio State at Wisconsin or FSU vs. Miami
Week 7: LSU at UF (last two defending national champs face off)
