For the first time in six years, ESPN College GameDay is headed to the Old Pueblo.

The weekly, nationally televised college football preview show will be in Tucson on Saturday morning ahead of the Arizona Wildcats' Pac-12 opener against the UCLA Bruins, ESPN announced Sunday morning.

The No. 20 Wildcats routed Northern Arizona 77-13 in Tucson on Saturday to open the season 3-0. The No. 10 Bruins rallied to beat No. 19 BYU 24-23.

GameDay last visited Tucson in 2009 for Arizona's matchup with Oregon. In that game, Arizona had a late lead and Wildcat fans prematurely made their way down to field level to rush the field in celebration, but the Ducks tied the game in the final seconds and won in double overtime.
