ESPN announced Sunday morning that College GameDay is coming to UCF for the Saturday, November 17th game between the UCF Knights and Cincinnati Bearcats. It was announced via Twitter by Kirk Herbstreit:

It is the first time UCF has ever hosted College GameDay which will be doing the show from the campus Saturday morning from 9 a.m.-noon with host Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack, Maria Taylor and Orlando’s own Lee Corso who’s famous helmet picks will now include a UCF game.

The exact site of the stage is yet to be determined.

In addition, the game itself will kick off at 8 p.m. and will be televised on ABC.

At 9-0, UCF can clinch the American Eastern Division title with a win over 9-1 Cincinnati.

ESPN’s Chris Fowler gave us a hint by tweeting at us that good news was coming to UCF on Sunday.

Fowler will call the game with Herbstreit and Maria Taylor. Here is Fowler’s reaction once the news came out.

UCF is ready to go:

Oh yeah. We’re ready.
