College GameDay is on the move again. And for the first weekend of November, it is heading back to familiar territory.
After a visit to Salt Lake City for the Washington-Utah game, College GameDay is headed back into SEC Country. Lee Corso and the crew are heading to Baton Rouge for the SEC West tilt between Alabama and LSU.

GameDay has been a fixture at the annual Alabama-LSU game. Including the 2016 contest, this marks the fifth time in six years that GameDay has been at the Alabama-LSU game.
Both schools were off this week. Alabama picked up a 33-14 win against Texas A&M in its last game, while LSU beat Ole Miss 38-21. This will be the second time this year Alabama has been on College GameDay, as the ESPN pregame program was on hand when Texas A&M visited Tuscaloosa. It is the first time this year LSU has been featured.
It also will be Alabama’s 38th appearance on the show, passing Florida for the most appearances by a school. This is the 26th time LSU has been on the show.
Kickoff between the SEC West rivals is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Alabama has won the last five matchups between the schools.
