TCU fans rejoice over College GameDay’s return to Fort Worth

TCU-College GameDay

ESPN is bringing College GameDay to TCU’s campus for the first time in 8 years on Oct. 7, and it’s shaping up to be one incredible atmosphere for fans attending the show in Fort Worth.

The crew’s trip to Cowtown for the TCU-West Virginia game will mark the first time that the show has broadcasted at TCU since November 2009, and the first time at a Big 12 campus since November 2015.

After the show skipped out on a top-25 matchup between TCU and Oklahoma State on Sept. 23, TCU fans on social media were overjoyed by the news of the show broadcasting from campus ahead of the showdown against the Mountaineers.

And of course, some fans are getting a jump-start on their gameday signs as college football’s biggest party sets its sights on Fort Worth.

It won’t be the first time that College GameDay has broadcasted from a game involving the two schools. The show set up camp in Morgantown ahead of the TCU-West Virginia game in November 2014. The Horned Frogs beat the Mountaineers on a last-second field goal, improving to 5-0 all-time while featured on College GameDay.

College GameDay broadcasted from Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth during Week 1 in both 2014 and 2015, by neither show featured a game involving TCU.

If you’re intending to join the masses with your game day sign in Fort Worth on Saturday, get up early. The show will broadcast from 8-11 a.m. CT, but as almost always, crowds are expected to show up hours before to reserve their spots behind the set in hopes of air-time.
