College GameDay will be in Jacksonville this weekend for the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party—the annual rivalry game between Florida and Georgia—for the first time since 2005.Most probably didn’t see the Gators and Bulldogs facing off as a pair of one-loss, Top 10 teams back after UF lost to Kentucky for the first time in decades. Now, the game is pivotal for the SEC East race.Based on the schedule, it was the most obvious choice for GameDay this weekend. Next weekend’s episode location probably won’t have much drama behind it either.In all likelihood, College GameDay will be in Baton Rouge for LSU vs. Alabama in Week 10.The No. 4 Tigers and No. 1 Crimson Tide are each on bye this weekend, making a virtual guarantee that we’ll have a battle of Top 5 programs on Nov. 3.For the 8th-straight season, #LSU and Alabama will meet in @CBSSports’ primetime slot.

The game is on CBS, but that won’t stop ESPN from making the call.There are a few other enticing options. West Virginia at Texas and Penn State at Michigan are both match-ups of big ranked programs. Still, they pale in comparison to the SEC West rivalry this year.Alabama-LSU was the host of GameDay two years ago, last time it was in Baton Rouge. Lee Corso made LSU his headgear pick, but Alabama won 10-0.Alabama-LSU was the third ever match-up to host College GameDay, back in 1996. Corso picked the Tide to win that game at LSU, and was correct. Overall, the match-up has played host to the show nine times. Alabama is 7-2 in those games.
