Baylor welcomes ESPN’s College GameDay for the third time

No. 11 Baylor will host ESPN's College GameDay for the third time on Saturday, Nov. 16., when the traveling program returns to Waco for the Bears’ matchup with ninth-ranked Oklahoma.

Baylor (9-0, 6-0) welcomes the award-winning program back to the banks of the Brazos River for the third time with previous visits in 2014 and 2015.

The popular national college football pregame show was last in town on Nov. 15, 2015, for a top-15 showdown with the Sooners. The other previous visit was Dec. 6, 2014, as the Bears defeated K-State to earn their first Big 12 Championship. BU is 1-1 all-time in College GameDay visits.

The 11-time Emmy Award-winning show, which is in its 33rd year, will be live from McLane Stadium for three hours Saturday. The popular pre-game show, which airs live from 8-11 a.m. CT on ESPN and ESPNU, is hosted by Rece Davis, and joined by analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack, as well as contributors Chris ‘The Bear’ Fallica, Jen Lada, Tom Rinaldi, Maria Taylor and Gene Wojciechowski.

Parking details and more information will be released in the coming days.

Later that night, No. 11 Baylor will host No. 9 Oklahoma at McLane Stadium at 6:30 p.m. CT on ABC. Chris Fowler, Herbstreit and Taylor will broadcast the contest.
