A First for the Flyers: College GameDay Caps Off Exciting Regular Season with Trip to No. 4 Dayton

College GameDay Covered by State Farm is ending the regular season on high note, as the crew heads to No. 4 Dayton for the first time next Saturday, March 7. The traveling pregame show, with host Rece Davis and analysts Jay Bilas, LaPhonso Ellis and Seth Greenberg, will be live from Dayton’s campus at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN, ahead of the Flyers’ game against George Washington (7 p.m., ESPN+).

This will be Dayton’s first ever appearance on College GameDay. The Flyers climbed to No. 4 in the AP Poll this week, their highest ranking since the 1955-56 season. At 26-2, Dayton is off to its best start in program history, winning each of its last 17 games, tied for the longest active win streak in Division I.

Following the show, Bilas, Davis, Ellis and Greenberg will head to Durham, N.C., for North Carolina-Duke. Bilas will join play-by-play commentator Dan Shulman and reporter Holly Rowe for the Saturday Primetime presented by H&R Block matchup between North Carolina and No. 4 Duke (6 p.m., ESPN). The game will be delivered live in 4K resolution on DIRECTV, Altice and Comcast.

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.
