We now know the first two stops for ESPN’s College GameDay.
Just a few hours after GameDay announced that it will be headed to Atlanta for the Week 0 showdown between HBCU programs Alcorn State and NC Central in the MEAC-SWAC Challenge, ESPN’s popular pregame show announced the next stop on its tour. It will be headed to another southern state.
GameDay will be in Charlotte for the massive Week 1 game between Clemson and Georgia, both projected to be Top 5 teams when the preseason rankings are released.
