ESPN considering Gophers/Michigan clash for ‘College GameDay’

For years, Gophers fans waited — sometimes patiently — as ESPN’s “College GameDay” visited locales across the country, including two stops in Fargo and one in Brookings, S.D. Finally, the popular pregame show made it to Minneapolis for the 2019 regular-season finale against Wisconsin.

Might “College GameDay” return to Minnesota for a second consecutive Gophers home game?

It’s possible, because the cable network is considering the season opener between the No. 24 Gophers and No. 19 Michigan on Oct. 24 at TCF Bank Stadium for its show, a source with knowledge of the situation told the Star Tribune.

On Monday, the Big Ten announced the Gophers and Michigan will kick off at 6:30 p.m. and air nationally on ABC. In another twist, the Gophers will play three Friday games this season — Oct. 30 at Maryland (6:30 p.m., ESPN), Nov. 13 at home vs. Iowa (6 p.m., FS1) and Nov. 20 at home vs. Purdue (time TBD, BTN).

The opener against Michigan will be played for the Little Brown Jug and could be attractive to the “College GameDay” decisionmakers because it’s one of only four involving teams that this week are ranked in the Associated Press Top 25. The others are No. 2 Alabama at No. 18 Tennessee, No. 8 Cincinnati at No. 17 SMU, and No. 20 Iowa State at No. 7 Oklahoma State.

“College GameDay” is going to Tuscaloosa, Ala., this week for the huge matchup between the Crimson Tide and No. 3 Georgia. That doesn’t rule out back-to-back appearances by Alabama at Tennessee the following week, but a Big Ten matchup would give the show some variety and break up its SEC/ACC exclusivity. By Saturday, the show will have included Miami (Fla.) three times, Clemson and Georgia twice, and Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Louisville and Wake Forest once each.

On Oct. 24, Cincinnati at SMU matches two undefeated American Athletic Conference teams, though the Bearcats and Mustangs don’t have the national profile of a Big Ten game, especially since Michigan-Minnesota offers a matchup from a Power Five conference retuning to play.

Iowa State at Oklahoma State could be a solid candidate because the Cowboys (3-0) might be the Big 12’s last hope to make the College Football Playoff, while the upset-minded Cyclones have a victory over Oklahoma to their credit.

Nebraska at No. 6 Ohio State on Oct. 24 might have been intriguing for “College GameDay,” but FOX’s “Big Noon Kickoff” pregame show will air from Ohio Stadium.

ESPN often makes its decision on the site of the show after the current week’s games are played.

Should “College GameDay” end up in Minnesota for the opener, it will have a different feel that it did last year. On a snowy Nov. 30, fans packed the Northrop Mall to see Rece Davis, Desmond Howard, Kirk Herbstreit, guest picker Eric Decker and, of course, Lee Corso break down the Gophers vs. Badgers.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Corso is making his picks from his Florida home, and the rest

ESPN’s College Gameday is heading to the campus of the No. 1 team in the country in Week 6. And not only that, but the popular college kickoff show will also be previewing a matchup between two teams ranked in the top seven of the AP Top 25 poll.

It’ll be a battle of top ACC teams at Memorial Stadium on Saturday night, when No. 1 Clemson welcomes No. 7 Miami in one of the top early-season matchups of 2020. The Tigers have won 24 consecutive games against ACC opponents, as their last loss to a conference team came on Oct. 13, 2017, at Syracuse.

If the Hurricanes can pull off an upset victory, they could shake up the rankings for next week and be in line to move closer to the top.

College Gameday will begin previewing the day’s action on site at Memorial Stadium at 9 a.m. ET on ESPN.

Here’s a look at the full Top 25 schedule for Week 6, along with predictions for each game.

Week 6 Preview

No. 1 Clemson has been to the College Football Playoff each of the past five seasons and has routinely been among the top teams in the country during that span.

However, the Tigers don’t always have challenging regular-season matchups, sometimes not facing top-level competition until later in the year.

This year, though, they are facing a top-ranked team in one of the marquee matchups of Week 6, as No. 7 Miami is looking to continue its strong start to the season with an upset win. Like the Tigers, the Hurricanes enter the matchup at 3-0 and are coming off back-to-back ACC wins against Louisville and Florida State.

Although both teams are playing well this season, Clemson has been the better program in recent years. It has won five straight ACC titles and a pair of national championships during that span. So, Miami is looking to make a statement with a strong performance against the conference’s best.

“This is a great opportunity for us to test ourselves against a team that’s very comfortable in these settings,” Hurricanes coach Manny Diaz said, according to Field Level Media (h/t ESPN). “This is not a big game at Clemson; this is just
