If you're looking for a sure sign that fall is around the corner, you could do worse than the annual announcement of College GameDay's first destinations.

On Tuesday, the venerable ESPN pregame show announced its first two locations for the 2024 season, which will include a milestone for the program.

College GameDay will originate from Dublin on Aug. 24—the show's first international broadcast—and College Station, Texas on Aug. 31. The first show will preview Florida State and Georgia Tech's all-ACC matchup in the Aer Lingus College Football Classic, while the second will showcase Notre Dame's first trip to Texas A&M since 2001.

The Aggies last hosted College GameDay on Sept. 8, 2018 before a 28-26 loss to No. 2 Clemson.

College GameDay is entering its 38th season on the air since its 1987 premiere. Former Alabama coach Nick Saban will join the show this coming year following his Jan. 10 retirement from coaching.
