Oregon fans show out for ESPN's College GameDay
Well before the sun rose for the day, Oregon fans were up and rocking on the set of ESPN’s College GameDay.
The crew for ESPN’s traveling pregame show seemed to be very impressed by the fact Duck fans were ready to roll well before 6 a.m. local time. Pat McAfee, Kirk Herbstreit, and Rece Davis all pointed out how impressive the turnout was.
It is 5:45AM local..
