ESPN Gameday in Eugene this Saturday!!!

"Not so fast my friend"..... NO, it's true the Oregon Daily Emerald is reporting that Oregon Athletic Department Officials are confirming that the ESPN Gameday crew and show will be in Eugene Saturday September 29 for the Oregon Ducks vs Cal Bears in a crucial Pac 10 shootout. They have reportedly reserved 70 hotel rooms in Eugene. BTW the Ducks are rated # 11 in the nation Go Ducks!


EUGENE – ESPN College GameDay has confirmed it will produce its weekly college football preview show from the University of Oregon Saturday morning preceding the Ducks’ home game vs. California.

Kickoff for the football game, which will be televised regionally by ABC on ESPN, will be 12:30 p.m. (PDT).

The premier college football pre-game show, which has aired weekly on ESPN since its inception in 1989, features hosts Chris Fowler, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit, and will air live from 7 a.m.-9 a.m. (PDT). The show began producing the telecast from college campuses around the country in 1993.

Details surrounding the exact site of the production will be released early this week, with the general public encouraged to be part of the production free of charge.

It will mark the second Eugene appearance for the show, which includes features, predictions and highlights of some of this week’s top games from around the country, and the third time the Ducks have played a role in the network’s award-winning college football preview show. The production’s last Oregon appearance occurred in 2000 when it made its first-ever appearance in the Pacific Northwest on Sept. 23 prior to the Oregon-UCLA game.

Oregon and UCLA also were featured in 1998 when the show originated from the
Rose Bowl

Let's see,.... if ESPN Game Day stars broadcasting at 7 am.... that means we will need to leave Medford at 4am to get there in time to be on the show!! If I paint my face green will I have a better chance of a close up during the crowd shots? What kind of sign should I hold up? BIG TIME COLLEGE FOOTBALL. GO DUCKS!
