ESPN GameDay coming to UW

I haven’t seen any official announcement of this yet by the school, but a press release from ESPN today states that ESPN’s GameDay will be coming to Seattle for UW’s game against UCLA on Feb. 20.
Here’s a version of the release, with the list of other games at the bottom, also stating that the UW-UCLA game will start at 6 p.m. on ESPN. That’s a Saturday night.
This would be a first for the Huskies as UW has not been host to a GameDay show for either football or basketball.
Here’s UW’s schedule from GoHuskies.com, which has yet to list start times for any games.
UPDATE — Here is the official release from the school.
In further info from the press release sent to reporters, the network stated that:
“The college basketball version of the popular College GameDay football series – two one-hour shows each Saturday at 11 a.m. ET and at 8 p.m. — will originate from the site of the Saturday Primetime game (at 9 p.m. except January 30) for eight consecutive weeks and will generally be presented > from inside or around the arena.
Highlights of this year’s schedule include:
—- Three of last year’s NCAA Final Four participants: North Carolina, Michigan State and Villanova.
— First-time stops at Clemson, Illinois, Kansas State and Washington.
— Three of the top four, and eight of the top 18, ranked teams from last year’s season-ending ESPN/USA Today poll: #1 North Carolina, #2 Michigan State, #4 Villanova, #10 Kansas, #11 Duke, #12 Syracuse, #16 Washington and #18 UCLA.”
