EAST LANSING, Mich — ESPN's 'College GameDay' and Fox's 'Big Noon Kickoff' on Saturday will both be live from East Lansing, Michigan, for college football's showcase game between No. 6 Michigan and No. 8 Michigan State.
FOX will also broadcast the game, scheduled for a noon ET kickoff.
Most weekends, Fox's pregame show is live from a studio rather than on location. But, it will be live near the stadium for the top 10 matchup. Big Noon Kickoff features USC Heisman Trophy winners Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart, former Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn, ex-Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops and host Rob Stone.
The ESPN crew has former Michigan Heisman winner Desmond Howard, analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, David Pollack and host Rece Davis.
This marks the eighth time in College GameDay's history (since 1993) that the show will be live from East Lansing, the home of Michigan State.
It also marks the fourth time in history that GameDay has been live from location of a Michigan-Michigan State game. That last time GameDay was on location for the rivalry was in 2015, when No. 7 Michigan State defeated No. 12 Michigan on the final play of the game on a blocked punt touchdown.
