College GameDay is headed to Bozeman, Montana on Saturday, and the fine folks welcomed the giant ESPN bus to town in the only way they know how …
By leading the 18-wheeler through the streets with a pack of horses!
College GameDay in Montana, with Saturday temps near 0
Look, I know some people get annoyed when GameDay goes to FCS locations or games, but I love it. You will never find a more fired up fanbase than an FCS program that finally gets some limelight.
I can still remember to this day some ELECTRIC scenes from North Dakota and James Madison. Heck, we even had a good time last month when the show made the trek to Jackson State.
Anyway, it’s a pretty ‘meh’ slate this weekend – it usually is the Saturday before Thanksgiving – so we’ll be treated to three hours of ESPN pregame prep from Bozeman. Don’t sleep on the game, either.
Montana-Montana State, also known as the Brawl of the Wild, dates back to 1897 and is the fourth-oldest rivalry in FCS.
The ‘Great Divide Trophy’ currently resides in Montana after last season, but Montana State has won four of the past five games.
Oh, by the way … I know the weather in Buffalo is all the rage right now, but has anyone taken a glance at Saturday morning’s forecast in Bozeman? No?
Bundle up, fellas.
PS: John Dutton for guest picker or we revolt. That should be pretty obvious.
