ESPN ‘GameDay’ will be at Ohio State-TCU game... kind of

The broadcast will happen in Fort Worth in the morning, with the game in Arlington at night.

With both No. 4 Ohio State and No. 16 TCU taking care of business in Week 2, ESPN announced on Saturday night that “College GameDay” will be going deep in the heart of Texas next week ahead of the two teams’ “neutral-site” matchup. However, it will be with a bit of a twist.

While the contest between the Buckeyes and Horned Frogs will take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas at 8 p.m. ET, “GameDay” will be in Fort Worth on TCU’s campus for the broadcast on Saturday morning.

The two locations are just about 22 miles apart, so that kind of makes sense in terms of drawing a crowd, while also underscoring just how ridiculous it is that this is not being considered a road game for the Buckeyes.

While Ohio State has knocked off Oregon State (77-31) and Rutgers (52-3) so far this season, TCU has beaten Southern (55-7) and SMU (42-12) to set up a battle of ranked, unbeaten teams in a primetime marque non-conference matchup.
