Frogs may host College GameDay

Frogs may host College GameDay

Frog fans who were not able to make the trek up to Provo, Utah, to see ESPN College GameDay’s Lee Corso slip the SuperFrog mascot head on might have a chance to see it in person next week.

GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit told ESPN Radio’s Galloway & Company that if Ohio State loses to Penn State this weekend, GameDay will most likely be redirecting its bus to Fort Worth for the TCU game against Utah on Nov. 14.

Also scheduled for Nov. 14 is the Ohio State vs. Iowa game, which would possibly have National Championship implications if Iowa finishes undefeated. Therefore, if Ohio State loses and drops down or out of the Top 25, the No. 6 TCU vs. No. 14 Utah game would feature the two highest ranked teams playing on Saturday, assuming both Utah beats winless New Mexico in Salt Lake City and TCU defeats San Diego State in California at 3:00 p.m. on Versus.

No. 16 Ohio State takes on No. 11 Penn State in Happy Valley on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. The game can be watched on ABC.

Only two other Nov. 14 games would feature a set of currently ranked teams – No. 22 Notre Dame vs. No. 13 Pittsburgh and No. 18 Arizona vs. No. 20 California.

College GameDay traveled to Provo to spotlight the TCU vs. BYU game Oct. 24 where, in one of the most anticipated segments of the show, Corso predicts the winner by putting on the school’s mascot head. With boos raining down on him, Corso lifted up Cosmo the Cougar’s head, tossed it aside and donned the SuperFrog head, with a pick that would later be verified by a 38-7 win.

GameDay broadcasts each week outside the stadium of the game it chooses to spotlight as the most compelling game of the week. GameDay coverage includes not only the morning pregame show Saturday, but updates during SportsCenter and College Football Live throughout the week leading up to Saturday’s game.

Fans are also encouraged to make creative signs supporting their team to hold up during the broadcast Saturday morning. The signs deemed most creative are posted on the GameDay Web site. The announcement of next week’s broadcast location can be found on the GameDay Web site, www.espn.go.com/college-football/gameday, this weekend.
