Earlier today, ESPN made a major announcement, revealing that College GameDay will broadcast from The Masters on November 14.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, considering The Masters is typically held every April. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was postponed in the spring and rescheduled for November 12-15.

As a result, we're getting a pretty tremendous crossover event. On November 14, there are a number of important college football matchups, including Wisconsin-Michigan and Alabama-LSU.

The GameDay crew will break all of them down from the famous grounds of Augusta National. Not surprisingly, this combination has elicited plenty of reaction from the sports world.

College GameDay will broadcast from its usual time of 9 a.m. ET to noon on November 14. The stage will be set above Ike’s Pond and the ninth green of the Par 3 course at Augusta.

Round three of The Masters will begin early that afternoon, right when the day's college football slate starts kicking off. We can't wait.

All in all, it sounds like an epic fall Saturday.
