Kentucky Basketball vs Texas A&M gets ESPN College Gameday

It's a big event anytime Kentucky comes to town, so it's no surprise they'll once again be part of ESPN College Gameday.

The Kentucky Wildcats appear to have solved their road woes just in time for next week's big matchup with the 13th-ranked (for now) Texas A&M Aggies.

After UK's 89-62 win at 20th-ranked South Carolina, the Cats will face Tennessee Thursday before making a trip to Texas A&M next Saturday for a showdown of arguably the SEC's two best squads. UK is now in a tie for first place in league play, but A&M has hit a skid and dropped four of five, but still are just two games out of first place.

That's helped lead to ESPN announcing that College GameDay will make their first time stop on the campus of Texas A&M for next week's big game. This will be the ESPN Saturday Primetime and is set to tip off at 6:30 p.m. The morning show begins at 11 a.m. on ESPN, followed by an evening edition leading into the game telecast.

College GameDay is hosted by Rece Davis, Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams. Calling the game will be Dan Shulman, Bilas and sideline reporter Shannon Spake.

Kentucky will be the road team at a GameDay site for second time this season after being the opponent for the Jan. 30th game at Kansas. Hopefully, the end result is different this time around.
