Where is ‘College GameDay’ this week? Location, schedule, guest picker for week 6 on ESPN

“College GameDay” will take the neutral site route for the fourth time in seven weeks of college football action on Saturday, this time heading to the Cotton Bowl in Dallas to see a preview of the Red River Showdown between No. 6 from Oklahoma and No. 21 from Texas. .

Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard, David Pollack and Co. will advance only their second game with a Big 12 team this season, and the first meeting of the conference. Saturday’s game between the Sooners and Longhorns takes on even greater interest in 2021, considering this could be the last time they meet as opponents of the Big 12. The teams are scheduled to join the SEC in 2025, though they may be able to jump ship as soon as next season.

Either way, the loser of Saturday’s game could be left out of the college football playoffs image. That’s true even for undefeated Oklahoma, which has been seen as the weakest team in the top 10 in college football all season, battling for single-possession victories in all but one game, a 76-0 win. about Western Carolina. The other teams they’ve beaten – Tulane, Nebraska, West Virginia, and Kansas State – haven’t looked like the best in the world either.

Texas is also in win mode or otherwise, although the 4-1 Longhorns hold the record to match their need to finish without further losses. They have played better overall in Steve Sarkisian’s first season in Texas than their Crimson rivals, but they lost poorly to Arkansas in Week 2. The road to the Playoffs is simple for the Longhorns: win, and (possibly) be in Lose, and they only have the Big 12 championship left to play for, which clearly doesn’t interest them, considering their recent SEC defection.
