College GameDay is going to Kentucky/Florida instead of Arizona/Oregon

Of course they are

NCAA Basketball: UCLA at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

When the Arizona Wildcats and Oregon Ducks meet next Saturday in Eugene, there’s a solid chance that both teams will be ranked in the top five of the national polls.

You’d think that would make ESPN sending College GameDay a no-brainer, but apparently, that’s wrong.

They announced that the traveling show will be in Gainesville for Florida/Kentucky next weekend.

Depending on how Kentucky fares against Kansas, both Arizona and Oregon could jump them when the rankings come out on Monday.

It also makes less sense since GameDay was at Rupp this week for the Kansas/Kentucky game. So instead of being at the Pac-12 game of the year, they’re going to a UK game for the second week in a row.

Arizona/Oregon is also on ESPN, so it’s not like there’s some kind of TV crossover issue to be worked out.

Just an absolute joke.
