GameDay Headed To Rupp For Missouri Game

08/08/2012 10:32 AM

For the first time since the 2009-10 season, ESPN’s College GameDay program will make a stop at Rupp Arena. The sports network announced this morning that GameDay will broadcast from Rupp prior to the UK-Missouri game February 23.

The game also marks the first time college basketball analyst Digger Phelps will be in Lexington since his much publicized scolding of UK fans before the show’s broadcast at Vanderbilt last season.
