ESPN College Game Day Hits The Hub City

Red Raider fans are excited ESPN College Game Day has hit The Hub City.

"It's going to be amazing. I'm just glad it's here. It's going to be a lot of publicity for our school," said Tech student Charles Beechem.

Beechem plans to get there as early as 3 a.m. Saturday to make sure he gets a spot close to the stage.

He said, "It's worth it. This is awesome. This has never happened in Texas Tech history. I want to be a part of it."

"We always end up somewhere that wasn't on our radar, and this is a week where we found out we were coming here, and we were just so excited. We love going some place where we haven't been before because the crowds are always enthusiastic," said director of College Game Day Lorenzo Lamadrid.

Lamadrid is hoping to beat the record of 15,800 set at Notre dame.

"I would love to see a huge crowd," Lamadrid said.

If you'd like to help take Tech to the record books, the broadcast starts at 9 a.m. Saturday morning. But the staging area will open at 7 a.m. Fans can camp out near the set the night before, but tents are not allowed. Creative signs are encouraged, but they must be appropriate. The game day crew will screen all signs near the set that could be seen on TV. Those with football parking passes, can park in those spots. Or you can park at the spirit arena or off campus. Game day suggests you come early, get loud, and have a good time.
