This is College GameDay’s second appearance this season for Ohio State as they traveled to Arlington, Texas for the Buckeyes’ week 3 matchup with TCU, and it’s the show’s third appearance at a Michigan game this season. Earlier, they traveled to South Bend, Indiana for a week 1 matchup between Notre Dame and Michigan, then in week 7 traveled to Ann Arbor for a matchup between the Wolverines and Wisconsin Badgers.
This is College GameDay’s first appearance in Columbus since Oct. 28, 2017, when the then-No. 6 Buckeyes took on then-No. 2 Penn State. Ohio State is 3-1 in the last two seasons when College GameDay shows up (any location) and 1-1 when those games are in Columbus.
If this is your first time seeing College GameDay on campus, be ready for pretty significant blockages on the Oval (which really isn’t any different from how it’s been this whole semester), unless they pick a different location. And, if you’re going to College GameDay, be sure to make a good sign. It’s a necessity.
UPDATE: From Ohio State University spokesperson Ben Johnson:
The first two hours (9-11 a.m.) of the show will be outside of the RPAC Building, while the final hour will be inside Ohio Stadium (11 a.m. – noon).
