College GameDay Coming to Norman to Showcase OU vs KU

ESPN College GameDay Covered by State Farm will make its second-ever visit to Norman, Okla., to showcase the No. 1 Oklahoma versus No. 7 Kansas men’s basketball matchup on Saturday, Feb. 13, inside Lloyd Noble Center. The one-hour morning show begins at 10 a.m. CT on ESPN, followed by an afternoon edition leading into the game telecast starting at 1 p.m. CT.

The Big 12 contest, scheduled to tip off at 1:30 p.m. CT on ESPN, is a rematch of the Jan. 4 triple-overtime classic when KU outlasted OU 109-106. The game has been announced by OU as a sellout.

Doors to the GameDay show will open at 8 a.m. CT and admission is free. Standard bag checks and security protocols will be enforced upon entry. OU students should enter through LNC’s lower north doors, while general fans should use the east and southeast Legacy Court entrances only. All fans will be required to clear the arena after the conclusion of the GameDay show.

ESPN College GameDay Covered by State Farm is hosted by Rece Davis, who will be joined by analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams. Dan Shulman, Bilas and reporter Shannon Spake will have the call of the game.

GameDay also made a stop in Norman on Jan. 28, 2006, when the then-No. 24 Sooners hosted then-No. 4 Texas. OU won the game, 82-72.

For the second straight season, the College GameDay sites are being announced one week prior to each show, ensuring visits to sites of top storylines and games appearing on ESPN networks each week.
