College GameDay announces destination for Thanksgiving weekend
After visiting Norman for the No. 18 Oklahoma Sooners’ clash with the No. 14 Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday, ESPN’s flagship pregame show, College GameDay, will head approximately 700 miles southeast to Tuscaloosa for the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide’s matchup with the No. 23 Auburn Tigers on November 28.

Known as the Iron Bowl, Alabama and Auburn have met 84 times dating to 1893, with the Crimson Tide holding a 46-37-1 edge.
The Tigers, however, won the 2019 edition, 48-45, in Auburn.
This will be College GameDay’s 16th trip to Tuscaloosa, the second-most of any location, trailing only Columbus, Ohio’s 19. Alabama hosted the show earlier this season for their October 17 victory over the Georgia Bulldogs.
The Crimson Tide routed the shorthanded Kentucky Wildcats, 63-3, on Saturday, while the Tigers defeated the Tennessee Volunteers, 30-17.
Alabama and Auburn will kick at 3:30 p.m. ET on the SEC on CBS with Brad Nessler, Gary Danielson, and Jamie Erdahl on the call.
