Rumors started to swirl Thursday night, after the Bears win over Kansas State, that ESPN could be zeroing in on the Baylor vs. Oklahoma game for their ESPN College GameDay choice. Saturday night, it was no longer a rumor, as the powers at ESPN announced that Waco, TX would be their destination for next Saturday.
Shortly thereafter, Baylor announced it as well.
This is the second consecutive year that Baylor will host College GameDay, after closing last year's Big 12 Title winning season against Kansas State with the GameDay crew in attendance. This year, Baylor will be hosting Oklahoma, who is 8-1 on the season after their dominant win over Iowa State.
In 2014, ESPN broadcast live from McLane Stadium, at the foot of the Sheila and Walter Umphrey Bridge connecting McLane Stadium to Baylor's campus. This site for this year's show is still to be determined.
