Houston, You’re Up! College GameDay Covered by State Farm Heads to University of Houston for First Time

College GameDay Covered by State Farm will head to Texas for its very first appearance at the University of Houston on Saturday, March 2. The traveling pregame college basketball show hosted by Rece Davis with analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams, will originate from Fertitta Center, beginning at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN.

The show precedes the American Athletic Conference matchup between No. 9 Houston and UCF (4 p.m., ESPN). Davis and Bilas will join Maria Taylor to call the game.

This is the first time either Houston or UCF have been part of a game that GameDay has originated from. Houston boasts the best record in the country at 25-1, and the Cougars have won 32 straight home games – the longest active streak in the country.

The College GameDay site will be announced one week prior to the show, ensuring visits to sites of top storylines and games appearing on ESPN networks each week.

It was always a dream of mine to work at ESPN, and here I am! I joined the College Sports PR team in March 2016. Hailing from the great Garden State, I graduated from Seton Hall University (Go Pirates!) with a degree in sport management, where I not only sang the National Anthem at games, but was also a member of the Seton Hall Sapphires Dance Team and a student reporter for Pirate Sports Network. Before joining ESPN, I served as a Public Relations Associate for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
