Augusta National will host ESPN's College GameDay prior to the third round of the Masters, chairman of Augusta Fred Ridley announced on Tuesday.
"When exploring ways to showcase a fall Masters, we were drawn to the concept of hosting College GameDay at Augusta National to introduce the Tournament to a new audience and provide even more anticipation and excitement to the event," Ridley said.
The Nov. 14 broadcast, which Ridley referred to as a "first-of-its-kind opportunity," will take place from 9 a.m. ET to noon before third-round coverage begins on CBS. The GameDay studio will be set up overlooking Ike's Pond and the ninth green of the par 3 course at Augusta.
The news already has golf fans excited for Lee Corso's pick to win the Masters:
Ridley also made a slew of other announcements, including the cancelation of the annual par-3 contest, split tee times for Round 1 and 2 due to a lack of daylight, and an earlier final-round broadcast window - from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. - to reduce the overlap with Sunday's NFL slate.
The rescheduled 2020 Masters runs from Nov. 12-15, where Tiger Woods will attempt to defend his green jacket.
