“ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The fifth-ranked University of Michigan football team’s game against No. 15-ranked Notre Dame this Saturday (Sept. 13, 3:30 p.m. EDT) will mark the seventh time that ESPN’s College Football GameDay crew will be present at Michigan Stadium. Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso and special correspondent Rocket Ismail will host the pregame show from the seventh tee of the Ann Arbor Golf and Outing Course across from the south end zone of the “Big House.”

The ESPN GameDay crew on its last visit to U-M, for the 2002 season opener.

ESPN GameDay, broadcasting live from 10:30 a.m. until noon EDT, will be located off Main Street across from Pioneer High School inside the gates of the Ann Arbor Golf & Outing course. The show will also be featured at halftime of the Purdue-Wake Forest game and on the 7 p.m. ESPN Scoreboard Show. GameDay will wrap up its coverage from Ann Arbor with appearances at halftime of the Alabama-Kentucky game and on SportsCenter at 11 p.m. The ADT National Championship Trophy will be featured on the set and in a display next to the set in Ann Arbor.

ESPN college football writer Ivan Maisel will be making live reports from inside the stadium during the 10:30 a.m. to noon show, while ESPN GameDay Radio with Mel Kiper and Dave Revsine will be broadcasting from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT in the Ann Arbor Pioneer High School parking lot.

With GameDay’s broadcast of one of college football’s most storied rivalries, Michigan will tie the University of Florida for the most on-campus visits by the show in its 10th year of existence. The appearance at the Notre Dame game also puts the Wolverines (16 appearances) behind the Gators (19) and Florida State (17) for the most appearances in the onsite ESPN GameDay game.”
