ESPN's College GameDay selects SEC destination for Week 5 location
ESPN’s “College GameDay” has decided on its location for Week 5, and the popular pregame show has landed on Athens for the big SEC game between Arkansas and Georgia.
Given the rest of the schedule around the country, it appeared that the decision came down to the Ole Miss-Alabama game, and the Sam Pittman reunion back at Sanford Stadium after he was the original offensive line coach for Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs.
Georgia is coming off a drubbing of Vanderbilt, 62-0, while the Razorbacks knocked off Texas A&M, and are one of the more improved teams, and feel-good stories of the college football season as Pittman and his homespun genuine personality has resonated with fans around the country.
The next reveal should be which celebrity picker with a Georgia background will be selected for the show.
