College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will originate from Norman, Okla., on Saturday, Oct. 27, the site of the prime-time matchup between No. 5 Notre Dame (7-0) at No. 8 Oklahoma (5-1), which will be televised nationally on ABC (8 p.m. ET). The GameDay set will be located on the South Oval lawn in front of the library.

College GameDay will air live at 9 a.m. on ESPNU and 10 a.m. on ESPN with host Chris Fowler, analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack, and host/reporter Samantha Steele and Tom Rinaldi. Brent Musburger and Herbstreit will call the game with sideline reporter Heather Cox.

College GameDay will make its seventh visit to the home of the Sooners and its first since November 22, 2008. Oklahoma is 5-1 with GameDay on campus and has won the last five of those games. The lone loss came in GameDay‘s first visit to Norman on September 30. 1995 (Colorado won, 38-17).

Corso is 4-1 with his Sooners headgear picks (having not picked for the 1995 game). The lone time he picked against Oklahoma while in Norman was on September 29, 2001, when he went with Kansas State, which wound up falling, 38-37.
