ESPN College GameDay has arrived in Boulder.

The popular college basketball talk show chose to come to Boulder for the No. 4 University of Arizona-Colorado game over a visit to Stanford, Calif. for the No. 23 University of California, Los Angeles-Stanford University game.

There will be live look-ins on SportsCenter starting at 7 a.m., followed by an hour-long segment on ESPNU at 8 a.m. before switching over to ESPN until 10 a.m. Doors will open at 6 a.m., and admission is free. Students are encouraged to come early to receive free breakfast and coffee, and the first 250 students will get Illegal Pete’s gift cards. There will also be a chance to win tickets to the game, and one student will receive $1,000 with a chance to make that $18,000 with a half-court shot.

After College GameDay, the CU women’s lacrosse team will play its first ever home game at 12 p.m. on Folsom Field. This is all followed by the Arizona-Colorado basketball game at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
