ESPN’s College GameDay won’t be at Ohio State-Oklahoma next week
Ohio State’s game against Oklahoma will be one of the biggest in the country next weekend. But College GameDay has its sights set on another marquee matchup.
Instead, ESPN’s flagship college football program will head to Louisville, Ky., for the Cardinals’ game against Florida State. It was first reported by CardChronicle.com.
Oklahoma dropped its opener to Houston; while it was by no means eliminated from the College Football Playoff discussion, it took some of the luster off its game against the Buckeyes.
The game is also on FOX, not an ESPN-affiliated network. It will kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The Golden Nugget in Las Vegas listed Oklahoma as a 6.5-point favorite over Ohio State before the season.
Louisville has looked sharp in its first two games, dismantling Charlotte and Syracuse by a combined score of 132-42.
Florida State stormed back to beat Ole Miss 45-34 in its opener and cruised past Charleston Southern, 52-8, this week.
GameDay could be in Columbus for Ohio State’s Nov. 26 date with Michigan, depending on how things shake out in the Big Ten.
GameDay went to Lambeau Field for Wisconsin LSU in Week 1 and Bristol Motor Speedway for Tennessee-Virginia Tech in Week 2.
