East Lansing, Mich. –  ESPN College GameDay returns to East Lansing for the Michigan State men's basketball game against Maryland on Saturday, Feb. 15 (6 p.m. tipoff). The Breslin Center doors at the Gilbert Pavilion and Northwest Kalamazoo gates will open at 9:30 a.m. Admission and parking is free.

The traveling pregame college basketball show, hosted by Rece Davis with analysts Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and LaPhonso Ellis, returns to the Breslin Student Events Center for a Big Ten Conference-best sixth time, beginning at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN.

This will be the 10th time the Spartans are part of a College GameDay game, also a Big Ten best.

“There’s nothing like College GameDay and it’s great to have the crew back on campus,” Head Coach Tom Izzo said.  “It’s always great to welcome my friends Rece, Jay, Seth and LaPhonso to our campus.  We had a tremendous crowd at our GameDay last year and I know that our fans will showcase our Spartan Spirit once again.”

Michigan State’s 2000 NCAA National Championship basketball team will be recognized at the game on Saturday night and during the College GameDay show, a few lucky fans will have the opportunity to win replica championship jerseys and pieces of the National Championship/Breslin Center floor.

Michigan State has previously served as a site for College GameDay in 2007 (Indiana), 2011 (Illinois), 2014 (Michigan), 2016 (Maryland) and 2019 (Indiana).  The Spartans have been the road team four times, in 2007 (at Ohio State), 2008 (at Indiana), 2010 (at Illinois) and 2011 (at Purdue).
