Kirk Herbstreit Confirms The Plan For ESPN's College GameDay This Saturday

A rumor has been floating around that ESPN's College GameDay will not make the trip out to Knoxville for the Alabama vs. Tennessee game this Saturday.

The official College GameDay Twitter account mysteriously deleted a tweet announcing the Week 7 destination. It leads some to believe ESPN has made a last-minute location change. 

However, Kirk Herbstreit is here to save the day. 

The longtime college football analyst confirms on Twitter that the show is heading out to Knoxville this weekend. 

"Just wanted to let people know @CollegeGameDay is 1000% coming to Knoxville this weekend-we are fired up to come back to town- our ENTIRE crew can’t wait to get there and give this game the love and hype it deserves-see ya in Knoxville this weekend! @Vol_Football @AlabamaFTBL," said ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit.

There was no other choice here. The Alabama vs. Tennessee game is going to be unreal. 

This is the first time in some time the Volunteers actually appear to be a legitimate challenger to the SEC's top teams. 

Kirk Herbstreit and the rest of the crew will preview the SEC battle this Saturday morning in Knoxville.
