ESPN announced on Saturday that, for the fourth time in just five seasons, the ESPN College GameDay crew is coming to Charlottesville next Saturday as the No. 3 Virginia Cavaliers tries to avenge its loss at Cameron to No. 2 Duke Blue Devils, this time at John Paul Jones Arena.
Virginia and Duke are scheduled to tip off at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 9.
Earlier this season, Virginia came up just short of back-to-back wins at Cameron, falling 72-70 after shooting just 17% from the three. Vegas won’t release their lines until the days leading up to the game, but KenPom is predicting a 71-66 Cavalier victory.
College GameDay is hosted by Rece Davis and is joined by analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams.
More details will come. Last year, gates opened at 9:30 a.m. with general admission for JPJ, no tickets required. The first 2,000 fans received free t-shirts, and the show airs from 11:00-12:00 Noon ET.
For those of you who can’t make it to Charlottesville, what sign do you want to see out there?
