As if you didn’t already think next Saturday’s game against the University of Kentucky was a big deal, ESPN is upping the ante.
The College Gameday crew — Rece Davis, Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams — will be posting up in the Coliseum and broadcasting from there for the Big 12/SEC Challenge. The Mountaineers and Wildcats mark the only matchup of the challenge between ranked teams so Dan Shulman and Bilas will be on the call for ESPN.
It’s only the second time Gameday has come to WVU for a basketball game — WVU-Louisville in 2009 was the first — so don’t be surprised to see some special stuff from WVU for this trip. A good game gets an even better lead-up.
