ESPN 'College GameDay' to MSU

Despite the Big Ten's early season struggles, ESPN "College GameDay" hasn't forgotten the league. The big show will make its first appearance in Big Ten territory this week.

Chris, Lee, Kirk, Desmond and the crew are headed to East Lansing, Mich., for the Big Ten opener between Ohio State and Michigan State. It's their first trip to Michigan State since last October, when they were in town for the Wisconsin game. That one turned out to be slightly entertaining, if memory serves.

Michigan State is 2-3 all-time when "GameDay" comes to town. Lee Corso is 4-1 in picks. The Ohio State-Michigan State game kicks off Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

Past results from GameDay visits to East Lansing:

  • Oct. 22, 2011: (16) Michigan State def. (6) Wisconsin, 37-31

  • Nov. 9, 2005: (5) Penn State def. Michigan State, 22-21

  • Sept. 18, 2004: Notre Dame def. Michigan State, 31-24
