ESPN’s College GameDay Covered by State Farm makes its long-awaited return to campus on Jan. 29 at the University of Kansas for its first road show since the 2020 season. The one-hour GameDay, hosted by Rece Davis, along with analysts Jay Bilas, LaPhonso Ellis and Seth Greenberg, will be live ahead of the Big 12/SEC Challenge matchup between the No. 12 Kentucky Wildcats and No. 7 Jayhawks (6 p.m. ET, ESPN).

The one-hour pregame show will begin at 11 a.m. ET on Jan. 29 inside Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kan., Gameday’s 10th visit to the iconic arena and the fourth time the show will originate from a Kentucky-Kansas matchup. Kansas holds a 2-1 advantage in the past GameDay meetings.

 College GameDay tipped off its season last week and will continue in studio this Saturday, Jan. 22, before traveling to Kansas and other campus sites throughout the remainder of the 2021-22 season. Future campus sites will be determined week-to-week and announced one week prior to each show.

I joined ESPN in 2022 as a member of the communications department working on college sports. My passion for college sports came at an early age in a divided household (Big Ten Conference-divided, that is) and followed that to the University of Wisconsin-Madison (sorry, Dad). Four years in the Athletic Communications Department, along with internships with the Big Ten Conference, Big Ten Network and NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, cemented my career path. After spending some time in sports media PR in San Francisco, I’ve spent five-plus years focused in golf, with stints at the American Junior Golf Association, Augusta National and Buffalo Agency, working with the USGA, Youth on Course and Destination Kohler, among others. Despite being a proud Wisconsin native, I’ll forever betray my home state as a lifelong Chicago sports fan. My dog Rizzo knows there’s always next year and wishes his namesake would return home to the North Side.
