The biggest college football pre-game show in the land, ESPN's College GameDay with Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and the clown Lee Corso, is coming to Fargo. The show will broadcast from the Fargodome prior to the North Dakota State-Delaware State game.
GameDay has broadcast from non-Football Bowl Subdivision schools only a handful of times. It rarely, in fact, ventures outside FBS major conferences. So the fact it is coming to a Football Subdivision School ... and Fargo, N.D. ... is a huge deal.
We'll be talking about this a lot in the coming week on 790 KFGO.
Here is a video put together by NDSU athletics showing the Game Day on-air announcement, followed by reaction from Bison athletic director Gene Taylor and quarterback Brock Jensen.
