WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - ESPN announced this morning that its popular College GameDay show will originate from Madison, Wis., this weekend for the Purdue-Wisconsin showdown.

It marks the Boilermakers' first appearance on the show. The Badgers will be making their third appearance, second at home. They previously were on in 1999 and 2000 for games against Michigan.

Purdue (5-1, 2-0 Big Ten) is ranked 13th by the Associated Press and 15th by ESPN/USA Today, while Wisconsin (6-1, 3-0) is 14th and 12th. They are two of only three unbeaten teams left in the Big Ten, along with Michigan State (3-0).

College GameDay is college football's most comprehensive and authoritative studio show.

For 90 minutes each Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m. CT, host Chris Fowler and analysts Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit cover every imaginable angle of college football with game previews, one-on-one interviews, behind-the-scenes features, predictions and more.

College GameDay will be making its 21st stop at a Big Ten school (14 for conference games and seven for non-conference contests), second only to the Southeastern Conference's 28 appearances. The show debuted in 1993.
