Georgia announces important information regarding College GameDay setup, locations
ESPN’s College GameDay is coming to Athens this Saturday for the highly anticipated matchup between No. 2 Georgia and No. 8 Arkansas. However, if you’re planning to be in the crowd for the popular college football kickoff show, there’s some important information to know.
On Monday, Georgia announced that College GameDay will be moving locations midway through the show. It will begin from the Myers Quad from 9-11 a.m. ET, before going to the West End Zone Pavilion for the final hour of the show from 11 a.m.-noon ET.
It’s likely the show is moving closer to Sanford Stadium so that ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit can get to the press box quicker. He appears on College GameDay every week, but he’s also going to be in the booth for the Georgia-Arkansas matchup, which has a noon ET kickoff on ESPN.
Know where to go‼️

This is the third year in a row that College GameDay is coming to Athens. In 2019, the show came to town ahead of the Bulldogs’ 23-17 win over Notre Dame on Sept. 21 of that year. Then, it returned when Georgia beat Auburn on Oct. 3, 2020.
Will College GameDay’s presence bring the Bulldogs more good luck? They’re playing well to begin the 2021 season, having won each of their first 4 games. But the Razorbacks are also rolling and have gotten off to a 4-0 start, so it should be an entertaining matchup.
This will also be the first time that Sam Pittman will be back at Sanford Stadium since he became Arkansas head coach. He previously served as Georgia’s offensive line coach from 2016-19.
