'College GameDay' headed to Gainesville

October, 14, 2012
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- ESPN's "College GameDay" is headed to Gainesville for Saturday's key Southeastern Conference Eastern Division matchup between Florida and South Carolina.

This will be UF's 35th appearance on "College GameDay" and the first time the show has been in Gainesville since previewing the Florida-Florida State game on Nov. 28, 2009. "GameDay" has already featured two UF games this season: the Gators' back-to-back road victories over Texas A&M on Sept. 8 and Tennessee on Sept. 15.

The Gators are 23-11 in games in which "College GameDay" has been on site (7-4 at home, 16-7 on the road).

Florida (6-0, 5-0 SEC) is atop the Eastern Division and is coming off a 31-17 victory over Vanderbilt. South Carolina (6-1, 4-1) is a game behind the Gators. The Gamecocks lost 23-21 this weekend at LSU.

A kickoff time for Saturday's game has not yet been announced.
