The New College GameDay Schedule: 3 Big Reasons to Salivate

College Gameday has selected its first games it will attend in the new season.

We're wetting ourselves already.

For the inaugural show this fall, they will travel to Cowboys Stadium, where Oregon and LSU come together in a showdown that could leave the loser on the outside looking in on the national title discussion.

The show will probably feature discussions about recruiting violations, agents, barroom brawls, and possible national championships—in that order. We in particular are happy that the Oregon cheerleaders will be on display.

Next, they are off to South Bend for the Notre Dame—Michigan match up, where Disney's going for the ratings war bearing in mind they won't beat CBS in the Sunday NFL games.

But Denard Robinson, a loud, drunk Michigan crowd, and the opportunity to see what state each program is in should provide compelling action. We actually hope that both sides lose.

And finally, it's Oklahoma vs Florida State, which isn't a terrible match up if you consider that many are picking the speedy Seminoles to win the ACC, and the remarkably deep Sooners (Big 12) to win it all. Pay attention to Landry Jones and that Ryan Broyles kid for Oklahoma—this has all the ingredients to be an exciting game.

Fans of Penn State will be annoyed that Gameday have ignored Alabama's visit in Week 2, but the Nittany Lions are no stranger to being ignored by the national media. If they DO beat Alabama, then expect Gameday to make a stop in Happy Valley later on in the year.
