Hurricanes fans, get those crazy, creative signs ready.

ESPN College GameDay is coming to Miami.

Well, actually to Coral Gables.

College GameDay, the wildly popular three-hour Saturday-morning broadcast that reviews the big games and most interesting matchups of the day, will bring its crew to Miami — almost definitely to the Coral Gables campus, several sources said, although the site wasn’t officially confirmed — for next week’s Notre Dame at UM matchup, ABC announced during Saturday’s broadcast.

The No. 9 Hurricanes (8-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference and ranked 10th by the College Football Playoff) defeated No. 13 Virginia Tech (7-2, 3-2) Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium 28-10.

The No. 5 Fighting Irish (8-1 and ranked third by the CFP) defeated Wake Forest 48-37 on Saturday afternoon.

College GameDay is hosted by Rece Davis and features analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack.

College GameDay was last at a UM-hosted game at the Canes’ former stadium, the Orange Bowl, on Sept. 4, 2006, when then-No. 11 Florida State defeated then-No. 12 Miami 13-10. That was a Monday, Labor Day game.

It was the only time UM has lost a game at home when College GameDay was there.

This will be the Miami’s 19th appearance as either the visiting or home team at the College GameDay site and UM’s first appearance since Nov. 2, 2013, when No. 7 Miami got trounced by No. 3 FSU 41-14.
