ESPN Producer Albany, NY Added to ‘To Be Considered List’ For Oct. 8 College Gameday
Earlier this evening Levack and Goz on ESPN Radio 1045 The Team taped an interview with ESPN College Gameday producer Lee Fitting.
The full interview will air during Friday's show at 3:15 p.m. Fitting explained the process in which Saturday afternoon Gameday sites are selected, and if lower level schools are weighed differently in the selection process. On Saturday October 8th, the UAlbany Great Danes football team hosts the Richmond Spiders in a match up between two nationally ranked FCS teams. Levack asked Fitting the question of if Albany, NY is being considered for the October 8th ESPN College Football Gameday site. Fitting's response was "Albany is being added to the consideration list". Albany has never hosted ESPN's College Gameday since the Saturday afternoon show started during live shows on location in 1993. College Gameday would be added to a list of athletic events potentially coming to to the capital region. The 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is considering Albany has a potential host city for Rounds 1 and 2. The Times Union Center has already been confirmed to host UFC Fight Night on December 9th. Levack and Goz airs weekday 2-7pm on 1045 The Team.
