ESPN’s College GameDay is setting up for its first live broadcast from Oxford and the Grove since the show was founded in 1987, and the hype around No. 3 Alabama’s matchup with No. 11 Ole Miss is only growing.
ESPN released its first teaser commercial for the visit this morning, inviting fans and foes to come to the Grove in their best Rebel gear.
