Auburn basketball to host ESPN’s College Gameday ahead of showdown with Kentucky

ESPN’s College Gameday has announced that it will make a trip to Auburn on Saturday, Feb. 17, when the Tigers play host to the Kentucky Wildcats. The network’s premier Saturday pregame show will make the trip to the Plains for the third-straight season and the fourth time in the last five years.

Auburn has a record of 2-1 in its Gameday games. The Tigers were victorious against Kentucky in 2020 and Texas A&M in 2022. Their lone loss came at the hands of Alabama in 2023.

Auburn joins Kansas as the only schools to host the show in the last four seasons that the show has traveled for.

Neville Arena will welcome host Rece Davis, along with analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams and Andraya Carter. The game itself will be called by Bilas, Don Shulman and Jessica Sims.

The game between the Tigers and Wildcats is set to tip off at 5 p.m. CST, while College Gameday will air at 10 a.m. CST. Both broadcasts will be shown on ESPN.
