Michigan Football: College GameDay To Open Season At Michigan Vs. Alabama

The annual tradition that is becoming the Cowboys Classic matches two big-time college football teams to kick off the season, and when Michigan and Alabama play at mammoth Cowboys Stadium on Sept. 1 in Arlington, Texas, ESPN's College GameDay crew will be there.

The popular college football morning kickoff show starts at 9 a.m. ET on ESPNU, then moves to ESPN at 10 a.m. until noon ET. It's Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Chris Fowler, former Wolverines receiver Desmond Howard and David Pollack, with a wild crowd behind the studio set waiting to see what mascot's head Corso will don for that week.

College GameDay enters its 26th season on ESPN and 23rd as a traveling road show. It's ratings made it the most-watched season ever for the show in 2011.

The Michigan-Alabama game kicks off at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The Wolverines are currently in the middle of fall camp in preparation for the season.
