Additional telecast information will be revealed next week.

About College GameDay

In its 26th season and 20th of originating from a game, ESPN's College GameDay won the Sports Emmy in 2010, 2009 and 2007 for best weekly studio show and was the recipient of the 2006 Outstanding Contributor to Amateur Football Award, given by The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame Awards Committee. Hosted by Chris Fowler, GameDay analysts include two-time Sports Emmy winner (2010 & 2011) for best studio show analyst, Kirk Herbstreit, former coach and player Lee Corso, Heisman Trophy winner and Super Bowl MVP Desmond Howard, and former University of Georgia football All-American David Pollack.

USS SAN DIEGO (LPD 22) is the sixth amphibious landing transport dock ship in the San Antonio class and is crewed by up 400 Sailors. Her primary mission is to transport up to 800 U.S. Marines and their vehicles and equipment and launch them for an amphibious landing on a beach anywhere around the world. SAN DIEGO is the fourth ship named for the beautiful California city, but the first to be homeported there. She is also currently the only ship in the Navy homeported in her namesake city. SAN DIEGO was built at Huntington Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss. and delivered to the Navy Dec. 19, 2011. The ship arrived in San Diego in April 2012 and placed in service during her commissioning May 19, 2012 in downtown San Diego. She is currently preparing for final contract trails and will deploy in 2014.
