College GameDay Covered by State Farm will head to Lexington for its second stop of the year. The traveling pregame college basketball show, hosted by Rece Davis with analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams, returns to the Rupp Arena ahead of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge matchup between No. 7 Kansas and No. 12 Kentucky.

The morning show will be live beginning at 11 a.m. on ESPN, marking its eighth visit to Kentucky – tied for the second most of any location. This is the 17th time that both Kansas and Kentucky will be part of the College GameDay game, which also ties for the second-most of any program. Kansas is 11-5 when College GameDay is present for one of its games, the most wins by any program.

The sixth annual SEC/Big 12 Challenge presented by Continental Tire will take place Saturday, Jan. 26, with matchups across ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU. The Challenge will feature six ranked teams and ten games as part of Saturday Showcase presented by 5-Hour ENERGY.
