ESPN’s College GameDay is coming to the Dean E. Smith Center on Saturday, Feb. 8. The show airs from 11 a.m. to Noon, previewing the day’s action and discusses the biggest storylines in college basketball.
This will be the eighth time UNC is hosting GameDay, and the 20th appearance on the traveling show. This will also be the 12th time GameDay will originate from a Duke-UNC game, the most of any matchup.
The doors to the Smith Center will open at 9:30 a.m. UNC students should use Entrance C to the arena and the general public should use Entrance D. Admission for this event is free, and seating is general admission in Sections 104-114.
Come early for a chance to win great door prizes. Concessions will be available.
Fans are encouraged to bring signs to GameDay. Signs with religious/political references, competitive/commercial brand references, personal/promotional hashtags, and profanity will NOT be permitted. UNC will provide sign-making stations inside Entrances C and D of the Smith Center.
Public parking for GameDay will be available in the non-reserved sections of the Manning (middle and bottom tiers) and Bowles Lots adjacent to the Smith Center. Disability parking will be available in the Williamson Lot off of Skipper Bowles Drive. All lots must be cleared by 1 p.m. for game preparations.
ESPN College GameDay is hosted by Rece Davis, who is joined by analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and LaPhonso Ellis.
