ESPN has revealed its first two College GameDay locations for the 2021 season, including a Week 0 trip that will mark a first for the popular show.
The GameDay crew will start things off with a journey to Atlanta for the Week 0 matchup between North Carolina Central and Alcorn State on August 28. It will be the first time the show will visit the Cricket MEAC/SWAC Challenge Kickoff game.
The following week, GameDay will be in Charlotte, as expected, for the much-anticipated Week 1 battle between Clemson and Georgia. This game could feature two teams ranked in the preseason top five and figures to have College Football Playoff implications.
Clemson-Georgia will take place at 7:30 p.m. ET on September 4 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. ABC will broadcast the action.

Additional info for the first two College GameDay broadcasts will be released in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, we’ve still got a little while until ESPN reveals where it will go in Weeks 2 and 3, but Oregon-Ohio State and Washington-Michigan seem like potential options for September 11 with Alabama-Florida, Auburn-Penn State and Nebraska-Oklahoma in the running for September 18.
