For the first time in program history, Harvard will host ESPN's College GameDay, televised live from the Dillon Quad Saturday, Nov. 22 before the football team welcomes Yale in the 131st playing of The Game.
College GameDay, in its 28th season, airs Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon EST. The weekly three-hour Emmy Award-winning show is hosted by Chris Fowler, along with analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack, and reporting by Samantha Ponder, Tom Rinaldi, Scott Van Pelt, George Whitfield and Gene Wojciechowski.
Tapings for various ESPN shows will begin on Friday morning from the GameDay set and will continue periodically throughout the day until the conclusion of College Football Live, which begins at 2:30 p.m.
All fans are invited to attend the tapings on both Friday and Saturday. On Saturday, Harvard Athletics will be giving away Harvard-Yale scarves to the first 200 Harvard undergraduate students with a valid ID, and will also be awarding 50 bonus CrimZone Rewards points to anyone that checks in at GameDay between 7-9 a.m.
