College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will head to Columbia, S.C., the site of Saturday’s SEC matchup of No. 5 Georgia at No. 6 South Carolina (7 p.m., ESPN). College GameDay, in its 26th year, will set up camp at the campus’ historic Horseshoe.

GameDay will be making its fifth all-time visit to the Gamecock’s campus, the most recent being October 9, 2010 when then-No. 19 South Carolina toppled then-No. 1 Alabama 35-21. The popular Saturday morning show’s first two visits to Columbia were when current ESPN analyst Lou Holtz held the head coaching reigns for South Carolina. In fact, the only time Lee Corso picked South Carolina with his famous headgear selection (9/11/04 vs. Georgia) – he pegged Holtz as a game changer. South Carolina went on to fall to the Bulldogs, 20-16.

College GameDay will air live at 9 a.m. 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 and Tom Rinaldi.

As part of the College Sports PR team at ESPN, it has been an exciting adventure for me since I joined the worldwide leader in July 2010, working on college football, college basketball, college lacrosse and WNBA properties. I began my love of sports as the manager of several high school sports teams and continued that hobby into college. While at Quinnipiac, I worked in the Sports Information Department, which led me to a summer internship at the New Haven Ravens, a AA baseball team, and an eventual job with the Athletic Communications Department at the University of Connecticut. After my five-year stint at Connecticut, I spent six years as Director of Communications at the BIG EAST Conference in Providence, R.I. before joining ESPN.
