ESPN is bringing “College GameDay" to Villanova.
The network announced on Wednesday that the Wildcats’ game against Pittsburgh on Feb. 12 will serve as the backdrop for “College GameDay.”
The network will air a two-hour “College GameDay” show from 10 a.m.-noon from the Pavilion (this year the program’s first hour is to be broadcast on ESPNU, the second hour on ESPN). Then, at 8 p.m. ESPN will again be live from the court at the Pavilion for 60 minutes ahead of the 9 p.m. tipoff.
This will mark Villanova’s second appearance on “GameDay.” The Wildcats made their debut on Feb. 27, 2010 at Syracuse. Pitt will be making its fourth appearance.
