ESPN’s “College GameDay” is coming to Jackson, Mississippi.
The show is televised on ESPN from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. CT on Saturdays, and often features the game of the week in college football.
It will be Jackson State’s first time hosting the show, and the show’s first trip to a FCS campus since Oct. 26, 2019, when the show was televised at South Dakota State.
JSU and Southern are scheduled for a 1 p.m. CT kickoff on Saturday at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium, and will be televised on ESPN+ (with a replay on ESPNU later Saturday).
Coach Deion Sanders has led the Tigers to a 7-0 record. Last week, JSU won 22-14 over Campbell. Southern is 5-2 and is on a four-game winning streak heading into Saturday’s game.
