KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Tennessee Volunteers will receive national recognition when ESPN's College Gameday show broadcasts Saturday live from the Knoxville campus.

The broadcast will air ahead of the Volunteers' Saturday match-up against the Florida Gators.

ESPN made the announcement last weekend after the Volunteers were ranked 23rd in The Associated Press Top 25. The Florida Gators are ranked 18th.

College Gameday is setting up to broadcast at the university's Circle Park location, across from Neyland Stadium.

ESPN released a number of rules and regulations for viewers. The audience may bring signs, but they must have no political or religious messages and contain no vulgar language. Also, dry erase boards and markers will not be permitted.

Along with rules on signage, the viewers are asked not to throw any objects at the Gameday set-up.

The audience will not be permitted to enter the viewing area until 7 a.m. Saturday morning.

Along with the ESPN Gameday set, the Knoxville Police Department issued a warning to those who may wish to rush the field after the game.

A KPD Facebook post states anyone caught storming the field will be charged with aggravated criminal trespassing. Anyone coercing someone to traverse Shield-Watkins Field will be charged with inciting a riot.
