Once again, College GameDay didn’t need until Sunday to figure out its location for Week 8 of the 2016 season. About an hour after No. 1 Alabama defeated Tennessee, the show’s Twitter account announced it would be heading to Tuscaloosa for their game against Texas A&M.
Alabama has been No. 1 in the AP Poll all season, but this will be GameDay’s first foray into a Crimson Tide game this season. Despite that, this will actually be GameDay’s fifth game this year involving an SEC team, with Tennessee claiming three of those appearances.
This was really the only choice for GameDay in Week 8; this will likely be the only Top 10 matchup all weekend.
