ESPN's hit show College GameDay is returning to Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, November 26th for the No. 3 Michigan vs. No. 2 Ohio State game. The Game kicks off at noon at Ohio Stadium and will be televised live on FOX. This is the second time this season Ohio State has hosted College GameDay. The first being on September 3rd when the No. 5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish visited the No. 3 Buckeyes. Ohio State won that contest 21-10 for the first victory of the season.
Both Ohio State and Michigan sit at 11-0 and are fighting for both a Big Ten Championships berth and an appearance in the College Football Playoff.
This is the second consecutive time (and 13th in rivalry history) that both teams are ranked inside the top five. The Buckeyes are 7-4-1 in the previous 12 top-five matchups, and the home team has come out on top all but two times. The last time both teams were ranked in the top five and played in Columbus was in 2016. College GameDay was there and the No 2. Buckeyes beat the No. 3 Wolverines 30-27 in 2OT.
Saturday will be College GameDay's 22nd appearance in Columbus, six more than any other city or school (Tuscaloosa, Alabama / Alabama Crimson Tide have hosted 16 times). This will be Ohio State's 55th appearance on the show, breaking the tie with the Crimson Tide for most by any school.
The weather looks a little wet, so if you're planning on being one of the thousands in attendance, bring a raincoat!
