ESPN’s College GameDay Built by The Home Depot – college football’s longest running and most celebrated pregame show – will begin and end the 2014 season from Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas. The weekly three-hour Emmy Award-winning show (Saturday 9 a.m.-noon ET) will open on August 30 in advance of the Cowboys Classic. The annual neutral-site matchup from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, will pit the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles against the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday Night Football as part of DICK’s Sporting Goods Kickoff Week at 8 p.m. on ABC.

SportsCenter segments will begin at 9 a.m. on Friday from Sundance Square, and College Football Live will originate from the GameDay set at 2:30 p.m.  

“We can’t think of a better place to kick off the College GameDay season than the location that will host the first College Football National Championship in January,” said Lee Fitting, ESPN senior coordinating producer. “We’ve had great luck in Fort Worth with ESPN’s Super Bowl and Final Four coverage, and now we have a match-up that includes the defending national champions, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and a perennial top-25 team. These two teams are known for their passionate fan bases, so we challenge them to come out in full force on the opening Saturday.”

College GameDay will make its final stop in Sundance Square to preview the inaugural College Football National Championship, set to be played on Monday, Jan. 12, on ESPN, also at AT&T Stadium.  

“We’re thrilled to have ESPN back in Sundance Square,” said Tracy Gilmour, Director of Marketing for Sundance Square. “ESPN’s College GameDay along with cheering fans always makes for a fun and energetic atmosphere; and Fort Worth is the perfect backdrop. We look forward to hosting ESPN next month and in January.” 


Hosted by Chris Fowler, the GameDay team consists of analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack with reporting by Samantha Ponder, Tom Rinaldi, Scott Van Pelt and Gene Wojciechowski

The first week of College GameDay will be the 240th headgear selection for Corso and he holds a 9-6 all-time week 1 record. Corso has picked Florida State 16 time with a 10-6 record, and has selected Oklahoma State twice, with a 1-1 mark. 

College GameDay expanded to three hours in 2013, averaging 1,830,000 viewers for a 10 percent increase over the same 9 a.m. to noon time period on ESPN in 2012.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Jameis Winston has been exceeding expectations at FSU for more than two years now, so it should come as no surprise he lived up to the hype Sunday surrounding his appearance at the Atlantic Coast Conference's annual media event.

A record number of credentials were distributed for the 2014 ACC Kickoff with the reasoning behind the increased media presence clear: Jameis Winston drives web traffic, sells newspapers and generates retweets. The superstar quarterback of the country's best college football program is the most famous athlete in this country not named Johnny Manziel or LeBron James.

He's Jameis Winston. And Sunday -- as he always does when the lights flip on and the recorders start rolling -- he held court as writers and bloggers peppered him with questions ranging from defending a national championship to thoughts on the unionization of college athletes to his own maturation process.

But before all of that began, FSU's third Heisman Trophy winner had his own question for the media:

"Before I say anything," Winston said with a growing smile, "how does it feel to have an ACC team come in here with a national championship, y'all? Can we give the ACC a round of applause? Finally. We took it away from the SEC. It's a blessing."

And thus the tone was set for more than an hour of questions on a myriad of topics. will have continued coverage on the event, including photos, stories on Winston and Charlie Ward's relationship and P.J. Williams' development into one of the nation's best, video and much more.

In the mean time, here are some of the highlights of Winston's time with the media Sunday, as shared on Twitter:
