GameDay Joins ESPN's America's Heroes: A Salute to Our Veterans Initiative

College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will originate from the flight deck of the USS SAN DIEGO (LPD 22), currently homeported at Naval Base San Diego, on Saturday, Nov. 10, as part of ESPN's fourth annual America's Heroes: A Salute to Our Veterans. The five-day initiative, from Wednesday, Nov. 7 through Sunday, Nov. 11, will honor veterans and troops in programming across ESPN's U.S. media platforms.

College GameDay will air live at 9 a.m. ET on ESPNU and from 10 a.m.-noon on ESPN with host Chris Fowler, analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack, and hosts/reporters Samantha Steele and Tom Rinaldi.

Servicemen and women, along with their families, from the Naval Base San Diego and nearby Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton will make up GameDay's live audience. Included in the early-morning telecast will be a feature by Rinaldi, who speaks with Clemson walk-on wide receiver Daniel Rodriguez, a decorated Afghanistan war veteran.

Additional telecast information will be revealed next week.

The ship arrived in San Diego in April 2012 and placed in service during her commissioning May 19, 2012 in downtown San Diego. She is currently preparing for final contract trails and will deploy in 2014.
