Before the UNC men’s basketball team takes on Virginia next Saturday, Feb. 18, in a battle between top 25 teams, the Dean Dome will play host to the 100th episode of ESPN’s College Gameday.
The show will air live from the Smith Center beginning at 11 a.m., with another edition later in the evening leading into the game broadcast–which is slated to begin at 8 p.m.
It’s the Tar Heels’ fifth time hosting the popular show, and 16th appearance overall–which is more than any other school in the country.
Analysts Jay Bilas and Seth Greenberg will join host Rece Davis at midcourt, as they take a look at the current landscape of college basketball and make their predictions for the night’s games.
The show’s location is always planned just one week ahead of time, in order to ensure top storylines and games will appear in ESPN’s primetime slot.
This meeting between UNC and Virginia will be a chance for the Tar Heels to get revenge after the Cavaliers defeated them last season in Charlottesville with the Gameday crew in attendance.
