ESPN's College GameDay will broadcast from the South Oval on the University of Oklahoma campus with Bizzell Library serving as the background on Saturday.

Chris Fowler, analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack, along with hosts/reporters Samantha Steele and Tom Rinaldi will be in Norman. The pregame show will serve as a prelude to the first football contest in Norman between Oklahoma and Notre Dame since 1966.

Now in its 26th year, College GameDay has been on site for 27 Oklahoma games since 1995, including last season's 55-17 win over Texas in Dallas on Oct. 8. Saturday will mark the seventh appearance of College GameDay in Norman. The Sooners are 5-1 in those previous six home games, with the most recent appearance by the show coming prior to a 65-21 victory vs. Texas Tech on Nov. 22, 2008.
