‘College GameDay’ returns to Columbus for Ohio State vs. Michigan

ESPN’s College GameDay returns to Columbus.

The ESPN college football pregame show will be held on the Ohio State University campus ahead of the Buckeyes-Michigan matchup Saturday at 12 p.m. on FOX.

FOX’s “Big Noon Kickoff” will also take place on campus for Ohio State vs. Michigan.

College GameDay took place on the Ohio State campus prior to the Buckeyes’ season-opening win over Notre Dame with special guest picker Jack Harlow.

Ohio State and Michigan meet for the first time since 2006 as two perfect 11-0 teams.

Ohio State vs. Michigan: “eliminator”

Prior to Ohio State’s win over Maryland, Desmond Howard, former Michigan wide receiver, Heisman Trophy winner and College GameDay analyst, said Ohio State vs. Michigan was a playoff “eliminator”.

Pat McAfee, former Indianapolis Colts punter and College GameDay analyst, appears to have already fired his shot for Ohio State vs. Michigan.

“The Ohio State team is in good shape, I think,” McAfee said. “I feel good with them next week.”

Lee Corso also has the Buckeyes beating the Wolverines on Nov. 26, putting Ohio State in its last four along with Georgia, Tennessee and USC.

But McAfee and former Ohio State quarterback and College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit agreed that if Ohio State lost to Michigan, it probably wouldn’t finish in the top four in the playoffs.
