ESPN's College GameDay headed to Utah for Cal game next Saturday


ESPN’s College GameDay will be in Salt Lake City next week when No. 10 Utah hosts No. 24 California.

This is the second time in three weeks that College GameDay will be in Pac-12 country. GameDay was in Tucson last Saturday, when UCLA knocked off Arizona in Week 4.

The contest, which will kick off at 10 p.m. ET and air on ESPN, features a pair of unbeaten Pac-12 squads. Utah (4-0) from the South Division was on a bye in Week 5. North Division leader California (5-0) should move up a few spots after coming from behind Saturday to beat Washington State 34-28 in Berkeley.

The Utes received one first-place vote in last week’s AP poll after knocking off Oregon 62-20. The Bears are 5-0 for the first time since 2007.

It will be the first time Utah hosts College GameDay as a Pac-12 member. GameDay last went to Utah in 2010, when the Utes hosted TCU in a Mountain West Conference showdown of top-10 teams. TCU won that game 47-7.
