WVU students camp out for ESPN College GameDay

West Virginia University students are already setting up tents in anticipation of Saturday’s ESPN College GameDay, which will broadcast from Morgantown as the Mountaineers take on Texas Christian University.

Four people got a jump start on the action Sunday evening, just hours after ESPN announced the popular Saturday morning college preview show was making a return visit to “Touchdown City.”

Tommy Skinner, 21, of Westboro, Pa.; Brittany Brown, 21, of West Liberty; Andy Thomas, 21, of Huntington; and Andrew Osborne, 21, of Cicero, N.Y. were the first ones to get in line.

“It actually was really random,” Brown, a junior at WVU, said. “We didn’t actually plan it … We were all at Wal-Mart and said, ‘let’s get a tent.’ Then, we set up a tent and said we were not leaving. There wasn’t much planning in the process.”
