College GameDay announces Austin, Texas as next week’s destination for No. 10 Longhorns’ matchup with No. 6 LSU

AUSTIN – It’s official, College GameDay is heading to Austin, Texas for the first time in a decade.

While it seemed like the obvious for the majority of the offseason, blowout victories by both No. 6 LSU and No. 10 Texas all but settled the decision for next week’s destination.

This will be GameDay’s first trip to Austin since the 2009 season when Lee Corso & Co. came down for then-No. 2 Texas’ matchup with Texas Tech.

Colt McCoy’s squad led the Longhorns to a 34-24 win over the Red Raiders en route to their trip to the 2009 national championship game.

This matchup, which should feature a pair of top-10 teams, was the second-most expensive ticket into a college football game this offseason, only behind Notre Dame’s trip to Georgia.

This news likely won’t help out those looking for a dip in prices right before kickoff.
