ESPN’s College GameDay Visits Morgantown in advance of No. 10 TCU at No. 20 West Virginia

ESPN’s College GameDay Built by The Home Depot – college football’s longest running and most celebrated pregame show – will make a stop in Morgantown, W.Va., (Saturday 9 a.m. – noon ET) for a Big 12 showdown between AP-ranked No. 10 TCU (6-1, 3-1) and No. 20 West Virginia (6-2, 4-1 ) on Saturday, Nov. 1 (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN2).

Hosted by Chris Fowler, the GameDay team consists of analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack with reporting by Samantha Ponder, Tom Rinaldi, Scott Van Pelt, George Whitfield and Gene Wojciechowski.  Fowler, Herbstreit and Heather Cox will have the call of the game between TCU and West Virginia.

 College GameDay Nuggets:

  • This is headgear selection number 250 for Lee Corso. Lee is 7-2 this year and 171-78 since the headgear pick became a show staple in 1996.
  • Lee Corso has picked TCU three times, and the Horned Frogs have won all three (by 40, 27 and 31 points), with two of the three wins coming on the road.
  • Lee Corso has never picked West Virginia, and a Mountaineers pick Saturday would represent the 51st different team Lee has picked in a headgear game.
  • This is the 2nd straight week – and 28th time – the show has been to the site of a game between an AP Top 10 team on the road and a team ranked 20th or lower. Each of the last two times the show has been to a game fitting into this category, the home team has pulled the upset (LSU over Ole Miss last week and USC over Stanford last year). However, those are the exceptions and not the norm. The USC win last year snapped a 13-game losing streak by home teams in this scenario (6-21 in previous 27 games).
