ESPN's College GameDay to Open 2004 Season at Tiger Stadium
BATON ROUGE — ESPN’s College GameDay will open the 2004 season on the LSU campus as part of the Tigers’ season-opener against Oregon State on Sept. 4 in Tiger Stadium.
The visit to Baton Rouge will be the fourth by the College GameDay crew, which includes being on hand last year for LSU’s 17-10 win over Georgia in September. Unlike in year’s past when College GameDay set up on the ramps of the Pete Maravich Center, this year they’ll be staged on the Parade Grounds in the center of campus.
ESPN College GameDay Built by The Home Depot is hosted by Chris Fowler with analysis from Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit. This year will mark the 18th season of college football coverage by GameDay with 11 of those years being on the campus of college football’s top game of the week.
Coming off its most successful year highlighted by record viewership, GameDay will introduce new devices and personalities that will enhance the viewing experience for college football fans this year. This season will feature GameDay’s first live demonstration astro turf field, the debut of reporter Jill Arrington and a new show open with music composed by Southern rapper Bubba Sparxxx.
