ESPN’s College GameDay will originate from Ann Arbor on Saturday ahead of the 12th-ranked Wolverines’ game against No. 15 Wisconsin Saturday night at Michigan Stadium.

The GameDay announcement was made Sunday afternoon.

Kickoff for the game is at 7:30 p.m. The game will be televised by ABC.

This is the first time GameDay has been in Ann Arbor since Oct. 17, 2015, when then-No. 7 Michigan State played at No. 12 Michigan.

But this is the second time this season the Wolverines are involved in a game from which GameDay has broadcast. The ESPN crew, including Michigan Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard, was on hand from South Bend, Ind., before the Michigan-Notre Dame season opener.

Last season, GameDay originated from two road games that featured Michigan — at Penn State on Oct. 2 and at Wisconsin on Nov. 18. Michigan has been in 28 games from which GameDay has originated and has been the host school 11 times.
