ESPN Sets First Three Sites for College GameDay Telecasts

ESPN has taken the wraps off the first three sites which will host the College GameDay crew for the beginning of the 2011 college football season.

The season kicks-off September 3rd as College GameDay broadcast from Cowboys Stadium in anticipation of that evening’s Cowboys Classic featuring Oregon and LSU.

Week two of the season will see the College GameDay program originate from Ann Arbor, Michigan as Michigan prepares to host Notre Dame.

Week three of College GameDay will come from Tallahassee as Florida State plays host to pre-season number 1 Oklahoma.

College GameDay is entering its 25th season and begins each Saturday at 9:00am ET on ESPNU before migrating to ESPN at 10:00am ET.  Erin Andrews will host the first hour of the show with Chris Fowler joining Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard beginning at 10:00am.  Tom Rinaldi will provide weekly features while analyst David Polack will join in as well from time to time.
