Beating Penn State in the season opener was “yuuuuuuuuuuge” for Temple football.
And going 7-0 after last night’s pulsating win at East Carolina was great.
97.5 The Fanatic afternoon drive host Mike Missanelli, who reported that his sources are telling him that ESPN’sCollege GameDay will be broadcasting live a week from Saturday when the Owls host Notre Dame University at 8 p.m. at Lincoln Financial Field.
Crossing Broad noted that College GameDay’s Twitter account posted after Thursday’s win that the last time Temple beat a nationally ranked team in the regular season was 1941. Notre Dame is nationally ranked.
ESPN had been eying a site near Lincoln Financial Field for the broadcast, possibly XFinity Live, which runs from the morning pre-game show through the end of the night game.
Regardless of the specific location, it looks like ESPN is most definitely bringing its signature college football program to Philly.
