It is now official as ESPN's College GameDay will be headed to Bristol Motor Speedway for Week 2 of the college football season. GameDay host Kirk Herbstreit and producer Chris Fallica —- or as you may better know him, "The Bear" —- revealed that the crew will be headed to Tennessee for the Sept 10. game.
The game is expected to sell out and that would mean a record-breaking crowd will be there to witness one of the best matchups early in the season. Virginia Tech and Tennessee should put on a show and the Vols opened up as 11-point favorites in Vegas.
The Vols are expected to compete for, if not win the SEC East crown this season so this should be a win for them. With the likely "home field advantage" the Vols will hold, they should be comfortable in an environment like this even if it is not a natural football stadium.
The game has a kickoff set for 8 p.m. EST right in primetime for ABC and ESPN.
