This is cool. Because I’m a snob, I think that every College GameDay in Philadelphia should include Villanova… but still, this is cool: ESPN College GameDay is coming to The Palestra for Temple-La Salle on January 18.
Tickets for the game will be split evenly between the two schools and the student section behind the ESPN GameDay set will also be divided equally.
The game at the Palestra will conclude ESPN’s “My Home Court” initiative – a week-long celebration of college basketball’s greatest venues.
Oddly, the game won’t be ESPN’s featured matchup that day. The show will air at 10 a.m. and the game will be at 12 p.m., rather than the usual prime time start at College GameDay sites.
The night game that night is Louisville-UCONN.
