ESPN to air special edition of College GameDay before Ohio St.-Virginia Tech game, but without Herbstreit and Corso.

Sorry, Blacksburg, no Corso or Herbie. Img. via mLive.com.

Attention. Blacksburg, Va.: ESPN College GameDay will be comin' to your cit-tay! The WWL will be broadcasting a special one-hour edition of its flagship college football program from Blacksburg before the Week 1 Ohio State-Virginia Tech game on Sept. 7.

The bad news Hokie and Buckeye fans: They'll be getting a truncated GameDay crew along with the truncated broadcast. Reece Davis, Desmond Howard, and David Pollack will be the only members of the GameDay crew who will be taking part in the show. Kirk Herbstreit will be absent from the GameDay set, presumably preparing  to call the game with former GameDay partner Chris Fowler.

Lee Corso won't be there, either. That means Blacksburg won't be getting the ceremonial donning of the mascot head. No word on how Corso will be spending his Labor Day, but it won't involve Brutus Buckeye or HokieBird's head on his shoulders.
