    Default College GameDay

    What are the chances College GameDay comes to TCF for the Penn State game?

    If both Penn State and the Gophers are undeafted going into the game I'd say decently high. The biggest issue is LSU/Alabama play that day, so we would need to make a compelling argument that our game is more important than two potential playoff teams facing off.

    Nebraska screwed up the first opportunity.

    The best way for any team to get Gameday is to join the SEC. ESPN continues to to be very SEC-centric.

    I thought this might be a candidate year for the Gophers to get Gameday but the team doesn't look like it will be quite good enough this year to go undefeated very deep into the season. If so, the pressure for ESPN to mark another potential Gameday host school off the 'no Gameday' list will mount.

    College GameDay is going to Ames for the first time ever this Saturday. The town is amped. They're expecting people to begin lining up at 4 a.m. for the chance to get near the stage. But it's also going to be a beautiful day in the 70s.

    If CGD came to the U of M for the Penn State game on November 9th, how many people are lining up early in the chilly weather? I'd hate for GameDay to start and there's like four guys visible behind Lee Corso.

    How has it looked when they have visited other B1G or northern locations in November?

    I think you underestimate the draw of CGD. There is someone with a WSU flag that goes to every gameday, its more than just our local fair weather folks.
    JUST WIN BABY!

    I mean, if both teams are undefeated, it's a certainty.

    The chance of that happening is effectively zero.

    We need to earn the chance to host. So far we haven't done that. I don't want them to give us a pity Gameday. Shoot for the sky. What about an undefeated Gopher team hosting an undefeated Badger team for the B1G west title? That is the kind of game I want for Gameday. If we somehow make it to PSU undefeated that would be a good one as well. Gameday is cool but lets make it a big deal when it happens.

    If both teams are ranked in the top X, I would say they would do it. Not sure what needs to happen for that X, or what that X is (25, 20, 15?)

    Great point that someone brought up about them going to Ames. Gonna be a crazy good time down there, I bet. If there wasn't a home game, I might be tempted to go tailgate down there and check it out!

    I have season tickets to both ISU and Minnnesota. Sold this ticket for $350.00 Going to Minnesota game as its our annual family game for all the cousins and uncles. But non university tailgate lots are already filling with cars and campers down there.

    If ISU pulls off the upset of ranked Iowa, I think Ames might be flipping cars over like they won the national championship.

    I wouldn't look at it as a big upset. ISU is ranked as well. We've been trending up past few years. It'll be more than competitive. I think ISU offense lost too much from last year to really pressure Iowa's defense from what I've seen so far though but I hope I'm wrong. On the flip side we have a top 3 defense in the big 12.1

    Sure, I guess I meant less emphasis on the upset part of it, as opposed to just being in the national spotlight, CGD there for the first time, huge rivalry, big momentum for the program, etc.

    When is the last time Iowa State won the Big 8 or Big 12? Ever?
