EAST LANSING, Mich. — ESPN College GameDay will return to East Lansing for the Michigan State men’s basketball game against Indiana on Saturday, Feb. 2 (6 p.m. tipoff).

The traveling pregame college basketball show, hosted by Rece Davis with analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams, returns to Breslin Student Events Center for a Big Ten Conference-best fifth time, beginning at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN.

“This, for me, is one of the more exciting moments in college basketball,” Head Coach Tom Izzo said. “It’s a great honor to have College GameDay come to our campus and I’m looking forward to seeing my friends Rece, Jay, Seth and Jay, who are among the best in the business. We’ve had some great crowds on GameDay and we’re looking forward to showing the nation our great Spartan Spirit.”
This will be the ninth time the Spartans are part of a College GameDay game, also a Big Ten best.

Michigan State has previously served as a site for College GameDay in 2007 (Indiana), 2011 (Illinois), 2014 (Michigan) and 2016 (Maryland. The Spartans have been the road team four times, in 2007 (at Ohio State), 2008 (at Indiana), 2010 (at Illinois) and 2011 (at Purdue).
