ESPN’s College GameDay Covered by State Farm – the Saturday morning and evening roadshow that discusses the top storylines of the college basketball season – will travel to Dallas, and the campus of No. 23 Southern Methodist University on Saturday, Feb. 14. The show’s visit is in advance of the Saturday Primetime presented by DIRECTV matchup between American Athletic Conference foes – SMU vs. defending national champion UConn at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN. GameDay’s first hour begins at 10 a.m. on ESPNU, continuing live at 11 a.m. on ESPN, plus an evening edition leading into the primetime game at 8 p.m. on ESPN.

ESPN3 Surround will be available for the SMU-UConn game, featuring in-arena natural sound and views from above the rim cameras at each end of the floor.

This will be GameDay’s first stop in Dallas and a first-time appearance for the Mustangs. UConn will be making its seventh appearance as part of the Saturday Primetime game at GameDay.

First-year College GameDay Covered by State Farm analysts Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams will join host Rece Davis onsite. Doris Burke and Dave O’Brien will have the call of the game.

Dan Shulman, Jay Bilas and reporter Shannon Spake will have the call of No. 4 Duke at Syracuse at 6:15 p.m. on ESPN. Bilas will contribute to the GameDay telecasts from the Carrier Dome.

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.
