 College GameDay: Off to East Lansing for Big Ten Showdown with Ohio State at Michigan State

 

Pack up the trucks and grab a sweater, College GameDay Built by The Home Depot is heading to East Lansing, Mich., site of Saturday’s Ohio State (4-0) vs. Michigan State (3-1) matchup (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC). The set location will be announced soon.

College GameDay, in its 26th year, will be making its fifth all-time visit to the Spartans’ campus, the most recent being October 22, 2011 when the school hosted then-No. 6 Wisconsin for a 37-31 upset victory.

College GameDay’s first visit to Michigan State was for the October 25, 1997 showdown against in-state and Big Ten rival Michigan, ranked No.5 at the time. The then-ranked No. 14 Spartans lost 23-7.

While Michigan State is 2-3 when GameDay visits, Lee Corso is 4-1 on his winner picks when in East Lansing. Needless to say, Spartans fans should keep fingers crossed Corso spends the week getting fitted for body armor and a helmet.

College GameDay will air live at 9 a.m. ET 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.

ESPNU Midnight Madness Tips off NCAA Basketball Season with 14 Team Debuts on Oct. 12

For the seventh year, ESPNU will tip off the nation’s college basketball season with more than four hours of Midnight Madness coverage on Friday, Oct. 12 beginning at 5 p.m. ET. This year’s programming will once again include both the men’s and women’s defending NCAA National Champions and eight teams in ESPN.com senior writer Andy Katz’s Preseason Top 25.

The night begins with an in-depth look at what Katz put as the No.1 team in his super-early rankings last April, with ESPNU Midnight Madness: Indiana Practice at 5 p.m. on ESPNU. For the first time, the network will air a Hoosiers’ practice live and in full with commentary from college basketball analysts Jay Williams and Dan Dakich.

ESPN3 will continue complete live coverage of seven school sites throughout the evening. ESPNU studio will provide fans with a “whip-around” look at highlighted teams coast-to-coast from 9 p.m. to midnight. The madness coverage will extend into its final hour on ESPNU’s nightly entertainment show, UNITE, with its inaugural Midnight Madness Special.

ESPNU Midnight Madness 2012 highlights:

  • In-studio coverage and analysis provided by ESPNU host Dari Nowkhah and college basketball analyst Jay Bilas, Jalen Rose, Katz, as well as contributions from Dick Vitale.
  • On-site commentators will provide coverage of various elements including scrimmages, player introductions, skill and dunk contests, team skits, head coach and player interviews, along with season previews. ESPN analysts on-site: Stephen Bardo, Doris Burke, Jimmy Dykes, Sean Farnham, Fran Fraschilla, Len Elmore, Miles Simon, Tim Welsh and more.
  • No.4 Kentucky, No.6 NC State, No.14 Syracuse, No.11 North Carolina, No. 25 Missouri, Pitt and FSU will all be featured live and in their entirety on ESPN3 with additional highlights and analysis on ESPNU throughout the evening
  • In addition to the teams below, Katz will conduct interviews with various top teams’ head coaches throughout the evening. Below, Katz on what to expect from the  ESPNU Midnight Madness: Indiana Practice -

“The remarkable turnaround for Tom Crean and the Hoosiers is now complete. IU is a favorite to be in the Final Four, win the Big Ten and have the player of the year in Cody Zeller. The pressure is immense but this team and staff have embraced the challenge.’’
