The last time College GameDay was in Lincoln was 2007 for Nebraska's contest with USC. Fans came out to hear the analysts' opinions or be seen on national T.V. Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Lee Corso broadcasted live from Memorial Stadium.
"Well, we knew all about the Husker fans," Fowler said in 2007. "They never disappoint us. That was an unbelievable turnout. It's hours and hours till kickoff, the weather isn't exactly perfect, but it was fun for us to do one right on Tom Osborn field. Right in there and to have that sea of red behind us."
The show airs weekly on Saturday mornings from 8-11 a.m. CT on ESPN and is hosted by Fowler, Herbstreit and Corso. It is still to be determined where the show will go live from.

Here’s a throwback of the last time @CollegeGameDay was in Lincoln - 2007 when Nebraska played USC. @KirkHerbstreit told our reporter at the time, Kate Ellingson, that he went to Misty’s in Havelock for steaks the Friday night before. #LNK #Huskers pic.twitter.com/z6uwO0RCaC— 1011 NOW (@1011_News) September 22, 2019
