UCF announced late Sunday that the set for ESPN College Gameday will be located at the southern end of Memory Mall, in the corner nearest the College of Health and Public Affairs buildings.

ESPN had been considering locations near the stadium at IOA Plaza, as well as along East Plaza Drive.

But since GameDay prefers a large, open area not necessarily near the stadium, Memory Mall makes the perfect fit, overlooking what will likely be a sea of tailgate tents with CFE Arena and other UCF buildings in the background.

The show airs Saturday morning from 9 a.m.-noon, but production will be taking place starting at least the day before, with live hits and shows going on through most of Saturday morning.

Kickoff for the game between the UCF Knights and Cincinnati Bearcats will be at 8 p.m. on ABC.
