ESPN College GameDay announces Week 13 location

·3 min read

Michigan enters Week 13 ranked No. 6 and is all but assured to be ranked No. 5 of higher in the College Football Playoff rankings when they’re revealed on Tuesday, while next opponent, arch rival Ohio State should be ranked No. 3. Generally, when the Wolverines and Buckeyes matchup as top 5 teams, The Game is usually in Columbus. However this year, it’s in Ann Arbor, and Fox Big Noon Kickoff will be in town (usually a given since Fox has the broadcast).

The biggest weekend of the year for Michigan football is somehow continuously getting bigger.

For the second time this year when the Wolverines are involved, both Fox and ESPN will have their pregame shows on the same campus — such was the case for Michigan’s top 10 matchup at MSU in Week 9 — as College GameDay announces that it will be in Ann Arbor this week.

Michigan currently is one game upside down when playing where ESPN College GameDay is, with a 16-17 record overall.
