ESPN’s Press Release Below:
College GameDay Covered by State Farm is ending the regular season on high note, as the crew heads to No. 4 Dayton for the first time next Saturday, March 7. The traveling pregame show, with host Rece Davis and analysts Jay Bilas, LaPhonso Ellis and Seth Greenberg, will be live from Dayton’s campus at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN, ahead of the Flyers’ game against George Washington (7 p.m., ESPN+).
This will be Dayton’s first ever appearance on College GameDay. The Flyers climbed to No. 4 in the AP Poll this week, their highest ranking since the 1955-56 season.

Following the show, Bilas, Davis, Ellis and Greenberg will head to Durham, N.C., for North Carolina-Duke. Bilas will join play-by-play commentator Dan Shulman and reporter Holly Rowe for the Saturday Primetime presented by H&R Block matchup between North Carolina and No. 4 Duke (6 p.m., ESPN).
