Let’s talk about the first Miami-hosted GameDay since we beat the brakes off of Notre Dame in 2017.
They’re comiiiiiiiiiin’ ……to our city!!!!
Welcome to College GameDay!!!
For the second consecutive week, the Miami Hurricanes are a featured team on ESPN’s iconic pregame show. This comes on the heels of being the road team in last week’s show on the road at Louisville, a show that preceded Miami’s 47-34 win over the Cardinals.
Here are a couple quick notes:
- Kirk Herbstreit came in contact with COVID-19 this week, but has tested negative. Still, he’ll be doing GameDay and his color commentary for the game from his home in Nashville as a precaution.
Hey guys-wanted to update you on this weekend. I came in contact with the virus this week while in Nashville, so because of that, I’ll be on @CollegeGameDay and calling FSU-Miami from home. Tested negative, trying to be as safe as possible. See you tomorrow-let’s enjoy some CFB! pic.twitter.com/bXuhpwjaMj

- Here’s what the GameDay set will look like this weekend:
— Canes F tball (@CanesFootball) September 25, 2020
- This is the eighth time the show has been to a Miami vs. Florida State game (The record for most matchups visited by GameDay is 11 – Alabama vs. LSU)
- It’s the first time the show has been at a game featuring a ranked Miami team and an unranked Florida State team
- Miami has won four of the previous seven games vs. FSU with GameDay in town
- This is GameDay’s eighth trip to Miami – the Canes are 6-1 in the previous seven instances
- Corso has picked Miami eight times and is 6-2 with those eight picks — including last week at Louisville.
- He is 5-7 all-time when picking against the Canes
- He has picked against the Seminoles eight times – and he’s usually correct when he does
- Corso is 6-2 when donning the headgear of FSU’s opponent, including being right five straight times
- This will be headgear pick 352 for Lee Corso
- He will look to start the year with three straight headgear wins for the second time in three years
Gonna be a long day, but let’s start it by talking about the show as GameDay is in town!
