Evanston will get its 15 minutes of sports fame this Saturday, when ESPN’s College GameDay broadcasts live from the Northwestern-Ohio State game.
The hosts announced this past weekend that they will be broadcasting live from Northwestern University, as the Wildcats celebrate homecoming.
GameDay will set up for a Saturday morning broadcast at the northern area of the lakefill on Northwestern’s campus, near Lakeside Field. The ESPN show last broadcast a Cats game in November 2010, at Wrigley Field, according to Northwestern. But it’s the first time Gameday has come to Evanston since 1995.
Both the Wildcats (4-0) and the Buckeyes (5-0) are undefeated going into the game, which starts at 7 p.m. at Ryan Field.
