ESPN Gameday is coming to Eugene, Oregon for the college football game between the Oregon Ducks and the Cal Bears. To see pictures of the set being constructed on the South side of Autzen Stadium click on the title for a link to a blog sponsored by the Eugene Register Guard. The set is being constructed along the east side of the paved path that leads from campus to the stadium. It's at the junction of the foot path and a paved road(Day Island Road) that crosses the foot path just outside the woods and across from the south end of the dog park on the other side of the footpath. It's before you reach the wooden bridge as you near the stadium as you approach from campus.
As I have said before this is the way I walk when I go to games at Autzen. We park on the campus side of the Willamette river and walk over the footbridge over the river and through the woods. Now when we come out of the woods this Saturday we will see the ESPN Gameday set and behind it Autzen in all it's glory. It reminds me of the movie Camelot when King Arther meets his future wife Guinevere in the forest at the beginning of the movie and as they leave the forest they see Camelot in all it's glory. Now, just win the game! Go Ducks!
