It has been a while, but ESPN College “GameDay” will return to the site of a Miami game for the first time since Sept. 6, 2008, when “GameDay” set up shop in Gainesville for the eventual 26-3 Gators victory.
This will be the seventh time in the Miami-Florida State series history that “GameDay” is present.
The Atlantic Coast Conference showdown will kick off at 8 p.m. on ABC and will feature Brent Musburger (play-by-play), Kirk Herbstreit (analyst) and Heather Cox (sideline reporter) on the broadcast. “GameDay” will originate from the FSU campus from 9 a.m. to noon. The show is hosted by Chris Fowler and includes analysts Lee Corso, Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack and Samantha Ponder.
It will mark Miami’s 18th appearance as either visiting or home team on the show. UM is 12-5 all-time on “GameDay.”
The last time UM won with the “GameDay” crew on site was on Nov. 5, 2005, when the No. 5 Canes defeated No. 3 Virginia Tech 27-7 in Blacksburg, Va.
• UM coach Al Golden said receiver Rashawn Scott is “in good condition” and “should be ready for this opportunity” at FSU. Scott broke his collarbone in the season opener against FAU, according to someone familiar with the injury.
