Rocky Top to host College GameDay in UT vs. Florida faceoff

ESPN's College GameDay announced the show is coming to Rocky Top on Saturday when Tennessee hosts Florida at Neyland Stadium.

It marks the second time the Vols will be featured on College GameDay this season. Tennessee beat Virginia Tech 45-25 in the Battle at Bristol on Sept. 10. Bristol became the 75th different city to host GameDay.

The show will be broadcast from Ayres Hall on campus. 

If you'd like to attend, the pit behind the stage will open at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning. The line to be part of the audience for the show will form  on the west side of Ayres Hall between the Austin Peay and Hesler Biology Buildings.  UT said Austin Peay will be open at 5:30 a.m. to accommodate use of elevators to access the Hill.

ESPN will also broadcast College Football Live from 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. on Friday from the ESPN stage on Ayres lawn, and spectators are encouraged to attend.

Knoxville last hosted GameDay against Florida on Sept. 15, 2012, when the Gators defeated the Vols at Neyland Stadium 37-20.

Saturday will mark the ninth time Knoxville has hosted GameDay.

The last time UT beat Florida was in 2004, which is also the last time the Vols won their first three consecutive games of the season.

The Vols are currently 3-0 after defeating the Ohio Bobcats.
