College GameDay is an ESPN program that covers college basketball and is a spin-off of the successful college football version. Since debuting on January 22, 2005, it airs on ESPN Saturdays in the college basketball season at 11am ET and 8pm ET at a different game site each week. One difference between the two versions is that the college basketball version always appears at the ESPN Saturday Primetime game location, which is the ESPN college basketball game of the week and appears at 9pm ET Saturdays on ESPN. This program has also appeared at the site of the Final Four. The first two years of the show, it went to seven sites in seven weeks, but starting in 2007, it has been expanded to eight sites in eight weeks. The official name of the show is College GameDay Driven by State Farm.

In 2005, the host of the show the first four weeks was Rece Davis, but then the last four weeks Chris Fowler hosted the show, but since 2006, Rece Davis has been the exclusive host of the show. Since the show debuted, Davis has been joined by Digger Phelps, Jay Bilas and since 2007, Hubert Davis has been on the team on the set with Dick Vitale contributing. In 2008 during Championship Week, Bob Knight joined the cast, where he remains to this day. Andy Katz has also served as a feature reporter giving up to the minute news and reports. Saturday Primetime is called by Dan Shulman and Dick Vitale along with Erin Andrews as sideline reporter.

College GameDay is broadcast live twice, both for one hour from 11am-noon ET and from 8-9pm ET, respectively. The series began its 6th season on January 16, 2010 from Storrs, Connecticut, where, for the first time ever, it was on site for a women's college basketball game.

When College GameDay tipped off its 7th season on January 15, 2011, the show expanded to two hours, with the first hour airing on ESPNU, followed by the second hour on ESPN. The first game of the 2011 schedule marked the first time the show has originated from a site that has featured a men’s and women’s game played in the same day.



The program has appeared in many different spots throughout each basketball arena. At Kansas, they were in the program's museum; at Kentucky, they were at the entrance of the arena; at UConn, they were on the concourse; at Gonzaga, Florida, and Marquette, they were on the court; and at Duke, they were in Krzyzewskiville, the tent village outside Cameron Indoor Stadium. It is also worth noting that in recent years (except for the Final Four), the morning airings of this program have taken place on the court.

Through the end of the 2009-2010 basketball & football seasons, 17 schools (Boston College, Clemson, Florida, Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, LSU, Michigan State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA, and Wisconsin) have hosted College GameDay for both basketball and football events. On January 22, 2011, Purdue became the 18th school to reach that mark, having hosted for football in 2004. On February 26, 2011, Virginia Tech will also be added to the list as they hosted for football in 2007.

Starting with the fourth season (2008), the basketball version of GameDay is broadcast in high-definition on ESPN HD.

On January 16, 2010, the 6th season premiere of College GameDay, the show was broadcast live from the site of a women's college basketball game for the first time ever as it made an appearance at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Connecticut. The show covered the women's college basketball game between Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Connecticut Huskies.
