ESPN bringing Gameday to Baton Rouge next Saturday
BATON ROUGE – ESPN announced its popular college football program Gameday will be live from Baton Rouge for the LSU-Alabama game next weekend.
It’s not a surprise, the game is expected to be the biggest match-up of the week.
The show has a cult following with people gathering behind the hosts for hours as the show previews the day’s games. People hold signs with one-liners, taking digs at competing sports teams using topical suggestions.
The Twitter account for LSU Football tweeted the show will be set up in the quad.
Previous Gameday telecasts have originated mostly from the Parade Ground but also the Quad in 2016 after a previously scheduled event for the Ole War Skule. Other locations have been the Old Front Nine and the ramp to the PMAC.
