DURHAM, N.C. -- ESPN's College GameDay Covered by State Farm will make its season debut at Cameron Indoor Stadium for the second consecutive year, on Saturday, January 18 to preview that night's showdown between No. 2 Duke hosts No. 13 Louisville.
The traveling pregame college basketball show, hosted by Rece Davis with analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and LaPhonso Ellis, returns for its 16th season, beginning Saturday. The morning show will be live from Cameron Indoor Stadium, beginning at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN, before the Blue Devils take on the Cardinals at 6 p.m.
This will be the 11th time Cameron Indoor Stadium hosts College GameDay, two more than Kentucky's Rupp Arena for the most of any venue in the show's 16-year history.
The January 18th matchup will be highlighted by two of the top players in the ACC going head to head in Duke freshman Vernon Carey Jr., and Louisville junior Jordan Nwora.
