Both the Kansas and Missouri basketball teams will be featured on ESPN’s “College GameDay” this season.
The Kansas City Star
Missouri, which will be playing its first season in the Southeastern Conference, will be on the show Feb. 23 when the Tigers make their first trip as a SEC member to Lexington, Ky., and face defending NCAA champion Kentucky in Rupp Arena. The Tigers’ only other “GameDay” appearance was last season before their 74-71 win over KU on Feb. 4 at Mizzou Arena.
“GameDay” will come to KU on Feb. 16 before the Jayhawks’ 8 p.m. game vs. Texas. This marks the show’s fifth visit to KU, which would be the most of any program, and the eighth time KU has appeared overall.
