Weekend in Waco: College GameDay Travels to Baylor for Top Five Matchup Between No. 3 Kansas and No. 1 Baylor

College GameDay Covered by State Farm is heading to Waco, Texas, next Saturday, Feb. 22, ahead of a top five matchup with No. 3 Kansas facing the top team in the country – No. 1 Baylor. Host Rece Davis and analysts Jay Bilas, LaPhonso Ellis and Seth Greenberg will be live from the Ferrell Center, beginning at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN.

The traveling pregame show will capture all the action leading into the Big 12 showdown, as the Jayhawks prepare to face the Bears at noon, also on ESPN.

This will be Baylor’s second appearance on the show, having hosted one time prior on March 5, 2011. The last school to host College GameDay for football and basketball in the same school year (August to May) was Michigan State in 2015-16. The football version of the show went to East Lansing in Week 2 of the 2015 season, while the basketball version of the show was the first of the 2015-16 season.

The Saturday Primetime presented by H&R Block matchup, with the commentator crew of Dan Shulman, Bilas and Holly Rowe, will be delivered live in 4K resolution on DIRECTV, Altice and Comcast.

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.
