Jan. 19—ESPN's College GameDay will broadcast live on Saturday, Jan. 29 from Allen Fieldhouse in advance of the Kansas-Kentucky men's basketball game, the network announced Tuesday night.

This will mark the 10th time, and first since 2020, that College GameDay will broadcast from Allen Fieldhouse.

The Douglas County mask mandate will apply to this event with masks required while inside Allen Fieldhouse, KU announced on Tuesday night. The GameDay event is free to the public, and doors will open at 8 a.m. the day of the game for fans wanting to attend the morning GameDay show.

The one-hour GameDay show will begin at 10 a.m. Central time with tipoff versus Kentucky slated for 5 p.m., also on ESPN.

The Kansas-Kentucky game is part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Kansas has won four of the last five meetings with Kentucky, the last meeting a 65-62 KU win in the 2020 Champions Classic in Indianapolis.
