ESPN's College GameDay Coming To Kansas Vs. Texas Match-Up

The Kansas Jayhawks can expect their fair share of national television exposure every year since the brand has proven to field an elite team each and every year. Even last year, which was supposed to be somewhat of a rebuilding year after losing Markieff Morris, Marcus Morris and Josh Selby to the NBA, found the Jayhawks in the national title game against Kentucky when all was said and done.

It's the power of Bill Self's coaching and recruiting to keep Kansas in the thick of things every year. It's also why ESPN's College GameDay will come calling this next season. The Jayhawks face the Texas Longhorns on February 16th and the ESPN crew will be coming to town to broadcast the Big 12 match-up.

"This is great news," Self said. "(ESPN) GameDay is a great way to showcase the best place in college basketball in Allen Fieldhouse and our program. Besides Allen (Fieldhouse), one of the reasons they keep coming back is our fans have rolled out every time we host."

The Jayhawks will have several new faces to highlight next year with holdovers like Jeff Withey and Elijah Johnson taking the leadership mantle from Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor. Several exciting freshmen will also suit up for Self.
