It seemed like a rather obvious choice. Surely, College GameDay would be in Alabama for the Ole Miss game. That won’t be the case.

The ESPN pregame show announced it is heading to Athens, Georgia, where Arkansas will take on Georgia on Saturday. There are certainly good storylines there. Arkansas is one of the most surprising teams in the nation after wins against Texas A&M and Texas. The Razorbacks and Bulldog are both undefeated. Arkansas coach Sam Pittman was formerly Georgia’s offensive line coach. However, that doesn’t seem nearly as newsworthy as what will be going on in Alabama on Saturday.

The Alabama-Ole Miss game also has a coach returning to his former team. Lane Kiffin returns to Tuscaloosa for the first time as Ole Miss’s head coach. He was formerly the offensive coordinator at Alabama and was a big part of the reason why Alabama’s team went from its traditional running offense to a fast-tempo passing attack.
