College Gameday Kickoffs Pitt-ND

College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will kick off the 2005 college football season in Pittsburgh on Sept. 3.

College football's favorite road show will broadcast from the North Shore beginning at 10:30 a.m. in anticipation of Pitt's showdown with Notre Dame at Heinz Field that night.

College GameDay features hosts Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Lee Corso. Additionally, Desmond Howard joins the crew this year as a weekly contributor and analyst. The show runs every Saturday during the season from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

The show last visited Pittsburgh in 2003, when the Panthers defeated Virginia Tech, 31-28.

Details for fans planning on attending this year's College GameDay broadcast will be forthcoming.

Pitt and Notre Dame will kick off at 8 p.m. for a national ABC telecast. The game ranks as the Panthers' most anticipated season opener in years and marks the collegiate head coaching debut of Dave Wannstedt.

Pitt football remains one of the best sports buys in the region. Season-ticket prices for the majority of seats range from $85 to $144. Seats in the amenity-filled club section are $240 (with commensurate Panther Club contribution). For more ticket information, call (800) 643-PITT.
