Get ready Oregon fans. GameDay is coming to your city.
ESPN announced its traveling pregame road show College GameDay is taking the bus to the northwest for next weekend’s Pac-12 North matchup between the Oregon Ducks and Stanford Cardinal. With the Ducks and Stanford both undefeated and ranked in the polls, the opportunity to get into Pac-12 territory was one ESPN wanted to capitalize on. Plus, Lee Corso loves the Oregon Duck mascot.
This will be the first time ESPN’s long-standing pregame show will feature a Pac-12 school since the 2017 Rose Bowl between USC and Penn State. It will mark ESPN’s first GameDay road trip to a Pac-12 school since November 12, 2016 for Washington’s home game against USC. The last time GameDay visited Oregon’s campus was September 6, 2014 for Oregon’s home game against Michigan State.
This will be the 10th time Oregon has hosted ESPN’s weekly pregame show, tying for the most GameDay visits among Pac-12 schools with USC. USC still holds a slight edge in all-time appearance son GameDay though, with 24 appearances to Oregon’s 23.
This will also mark the 11th time Stanford has been featured on GameDay. The Cardinal have hosted GameDay just once in the history of the show.
