ESPN’s College GameDay is coming to Texas A&M for Saturday’s game against second-ranked Clemson.

The network officially announced it late Saturday via Twitter.

“College Station, WE ARE COMING TO YOUR CITY!”

A&M opened the season with a 59-7 victory Thursday night over Northwestern State in the debut of head coach Jimbo Fisher, while Clemson blasted Furman 48-7 on Saturday.

While at Florida State, Fisher split eight games with Clemson and head coach Dabo Swinney, but Swinney won the last three meetings, including 31-14 last year.

A&M is 1-6 in GameDay appearances, including 1-4 at home. GameDay was last at Kyle Field on Oct. 8, 2016, when A&M beat Tennessee 45-38 in two overtimes. The Aggies were part of GameDay two weeks later in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, as the Crimson Tide grabbed a 33-14 victory.

A&M’s other GameDay appearances were a 49-42 loss to top-ranked Alabama in 2013 at Kyle Field; a 20-17 loss to Florida in 2012 at Kyle Field in A&M’s debut in the Southeastern Conference; a 17-16 loss to Oklahoma in 2006 at Kyle Field; a 35-31 loss to OU in 2000, also at Kyle Field; and a 29-21 loss to Colorado in 1995 in Boulder, Colorado.

The Clemson-A&M game will be at 6 p.m. and be televised by ESPN.
