Syracuse vs. Duke: The Rematch So Nice GameDay Had To Be There Twice

USA TODAY Sports

When the possibly-undefeated No. 1 Orange visit Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday, February 22, the GameDay crew will be waiting for them.

The first Syracuse Orange - Duke Blue Devils game was so exciting in large part because it had been built up to be so. If there wasn't so much hype, it never would have become a classic so instantly. It met, and surpassed, insane expectations.

Get ready to do it all over again.

When the possibly-undefeated No. 1 Orange visit No. 5 Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday, February 22, the GameDay crew will be waiting for them.

ESPN’s enhanced coverage of No. 5 Duke at North Carolina on Thursday, Feb. 20, and undefeated No. 1 Syracuse at No. 5 Duke on Saturday, Feb. 22, will include a live studio presence from the site of both games. Coverage will begin from Chapel Hill on Thursday morning with Rece Davis, Jay Williams and Seth Greenberg providing live reports and analysis through the day and halftime around the rescheduled Duke at North Carolina game (ESPN, 9 p.m. ET).

The crew of Chris Cotter, Jay Bilas and Greenberg will then move to Duke’s campus where they will appear across ESPN platforms from Friday morning through Saturday in anticipation of that day’s Syracuse-Duke rematch (ESPN, 7 p.m.). Saturday’s 6 p.m. College GameDay Covered by State Farm telecast will derive from inside Cameron Indoor Stadium, with the trio also handling halftime live from the court. The crew of Dan Shulman, Jay Bilas and Dick Vitale, along with reporter Shannon Spake, will call the game.

Say what you will about the quick-turnaround, the delay of the Duke-UNC game has turned into a goldmine for college basketball hype and excitement. It's like a mini-ACC Tournament/NCAA Tournament rolled into three days.

Is there a way to make sure Greenberg and Vitale get lost in Raleigh or something? Just a request...
