We've almost done it. We've almost weathered the 2015 offseason.
As proof of that: ESPN is starting to announce the locations for its College GameDay show.
Herbie and the gang will open the season in Fort Worth, Texas, for the Alabama and Wisconsin showdown at Jerryworld in Arlington. It's GameDay's first appearance in that city since 2009, when it ventured there for Utah-TCU.
More notably, however, the roving show will make an appearance in Blacksburg on Labor Day, for that night's nationally-televised Ohio State-Virginia Tech game.
Don't worry, @VT_Football -- we didn't forget about you because it's on Monday. We'll be in Blacksburg this Labor Day for Ohio State!— College GameDay (@CollegeGameDay) August 3, 2015
Hokie coach Frank Beamer has said it will be the most anticipated game in program history.
Alabama and Wisconsin kickoff on Saturday, Sept. 5, at 8 p.m. Ohio State and Virginia Tech will play on Monday, Sept. 7, at 8 p.m.
