CINCINNATI — For the first time in the show's history, ESPN's College GameDay is coming to the University of Cincinnati this Saturday.

College GameDay will broadcast live from UC's campus ahead of No. 2 Cincinnati's match-up with Tulsa. The game coincides with the university's homecoming, which will have a parade as part of the festivities that will air on GameDay.

The show will air for three hours, from 9 a.m. to noon. They will broadcast from the Commons, just outside of Nippert. The best (appropriate) sign wins two tickets to the game.

Trucks could be seen around UC's campus on Wednesday to begin setting up for the broadcast.

The announcement was originally made on Twitter.

The Bearcats are one of the top teams in college football this year. The team currently has an 8-0 record for the fifth time in program history. Cincinnati is currently the only team in the country that ranks in the Top 10 nationally in both scoring offense and scoring defense. They were recently snubbed by the College Football Playoff rankings. Despite being ranked Number 2 in the country, they were out of the four-team playoff projections in the first rankings released Tuesday.

They play Tulsa at 3:30 p.m. If you can't make it to campus for the fun, the game is airing on ESPN 2.
