Usually, when ESPN's College GameDay announces its location for the upcoming week, the fan base of the hosting school is thrilled. After all, the pregame show is great publicity for the school's football program and just makes the atmosphere on game day fun.

ESPN's College GameDay will be in Columbus this Saturday. Ohio State is hosting Penn State in a pivotal Big Ten matchup.

Buckeyes fans - at least some of them - do not appear to be thrilled with GameDay's decision. A bunch of Ohio State fans have tweeted back at the official account, telling the show not to come.

Ohio State fans have often felt that ESPN has an SEC bias and those feelings have been ramped up over the last year, it appears.

As you can see, Buckeye Nation does not appear to be thrilled with ESPN's College GameDay coming to town.

FOX will also have its pregame show, Big Noon Kickoff, live from Columbus on Saturday. That show features former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer. Buckeyes fans certainly like that one.

It will be interesting to see if College GameDay's crowd at Ohio State is smaller than usual as a result of this.

ESPN's College GameDay airs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. E.T.
