ESPN College Gameday to broadcast from Bascom Hill

2011-09-28T08:00:00Z 2011-09-28T14:32:32Z ESPN College Gameday to broadcast from Bascom HillBILL NOVAK | The Capital Times |

With the ESPN College Gameday team setting up near the statue of Abe Lincoln on Bascom Hill on Saturday, will Lee Corso wear a stovepipe hat and beard?

The former coach and mascot-head wearer will be on the set with fellow Gameday members Desmond Howard, Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit when ESPN College Gameday comes to Madison for the much-anticipated football game between Wisconsin and Nebraska.

The live broadcast will begin at 8 a.m. on ESPNU and then switch to  ESPN from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Kickoff at Camp Randall Stadium is at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ABC.

With Gameday on Bascom Hill, football fans will be able to get "up close and personal" to the set, unlike last year when the crew was in town and set up inside the stadium for the UW-Ohio State game.

This is the fifth time ESPN College Gameday has come to Madison, the first coming in 1999 for a game against Michigan.

A highlight of the three-hour pregame Gameday is near the end of the show, when Corso dons the head of the mascot of the team he's picking to win the game.

In this case, his choice will be Bucky Badger or Herbie Husker.
