Where in the world will Chris, Herbie and Coach Corso end up this season?
The games themselves are what get us most excited about college football every fall, but there's also the added drama each week that comes with finding out where ESPN will be sending its famous traveling pregame show, College GameDay. If a program like that is coming to campus, it must mean two things: it's a big game, and it's time to come strong with your sign-making game.
Most sites are chosen on a week-to-week basis, with ESPN gauging the importance of the matchups and other factors to determine where to send host Chris Fowler, analysts Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit and the massive crew that builds the set either somewhere on a college campus or to a nearby off-campus venue.
Because it's often based on the marquee matchups being played that week, it's not surprising that the usual suspects end up hosting on a regular basis, and some teams end up being featured in multiple games in the same season.
But some wild cards can pop up, too, such as last year when College GameDay went to Fargo, N.D. in September to spotlight two-time (and eventual three-time) FCS champion North Dakota State.
Using all of these factors, we've picked our spots for where College GameDay will head during the 2014 season. There are plenty of old standards on the schedule, as well as some first-time locales.
Read on to see where Washington State alumni will need to head to get their flag on national television each Saturday.
