Where is ‘College GameDay’ this week? Location, schedule, guest picker for Week 4 on ESPN

“College GameDay” is featuring its first all-conference game of the season in Week 4 and, surprise, it’s in the SEC.

Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack, Lee Corso and the gang are heading to Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn., for the ranked SEC East divisional matchup between No. 11 Tennessee and No. 20 Florida.

Tennessee is off to its best start in years under second-year coach Josh Huepel, starting 3-0 for the first time since 2016 — coincidentally, the last time the Volunteers beat Florida, who are enjoying a five-game win streak in this rivalry .

Florida, meanwhile, is looking to rebound from a disappointing two-week stretch that saw the Gators lose to Kentucky and suffer through a 31-28 victory over South Florida. That, of course, followed a Week 1 upset over No. 7 Utah in The Swamp.
