ESPN's College GameDay will be on campus this weekend for second-ranked LSU's game against ninth-ranked Virginia Tech. Many consider the LSU-Virginia Tech matchup one of this year's top non-conference contests in college football.
LSU and Virginia Tech square off at 8:15 p.m. on Saturday in a nationally televised contest on ESPN.
The LSU campus will also serve as the host site for ESPN's College GameDay Radio this weekend. College GameDay Radio will broadcast from the Parade Grounds throughout the day on Saturday.
ESPN's College GameDay Built by The Home Depot is hosted by Chris Fowler with analysis from Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard. This year will mark the 21st season of college football coverage by GameDay with 14 of those years being on the campus of college football's top game of the week.
This year's trip marks the fifth time College GameDay has visited LSU for a football game. The last time College Gameday came to Baton Rouge for a game was for the 2004 season-opener against Oregon State. College Gameday was scheduled to return to Baton Rouge in 2005 for the Tennessee contest, however, Hurricane Rita forced the show to cancel its visit that weekend.
