cc1 Test message This is something that you've never seen before. ESPN's college game day bringing the entire crew to the big apple for the first time right there, ringing the opening bell at the New York stock exchange. And game day reporter MARIA Taylor joins us from just outside our studios in times square. MARIA, good morning to you. Thanks for joining us. I know this is a really exciting time for game day. I understand the idea to do game day in times square was born a couple of years ago, but why times square? Good morning, Paula. As you can see, there's a lot of college football fans in new York City. They did a little bit of research and found out there's actually 32 FBS bars just within a mile of our setup here and they're opening up at like 8:00 A.M. Fans will be there cheering on their teams. It's just kind of cool to bring P Su such a great show to the city of New York City, and people were out here at 6:00 A.M. They were already here ready to go. This is impressive to see and I know there was controversy when you guys first announced that you would be coming to Manhattan because it's not a college football town per se, there are no major college football teams but so many here in Manhattan went to those big schools. Looks like you're expecting quite a turnout. Like you, Paula, you're still a fan of Michigan football. Go blue. They identify with college football and we're bringing it to them for this one week. Plus it's kind of CL to be sitting in front of the ball and seeing a bunch of fans here and talking about college football in the city. It's iconic and looks amazing. I hear you're flying to Iowa right after the show for the iowa/penn state game. What can you tell us about that matchup? I don't know if you know this but Iowa actually has pink locker rooms for their visitors and the idea is for them to have passive moods but there might be something to it because Iowa actually won their last three home games against top five opponents, all big upsets. Story they beat Michigan last year by one point. I didn't hear that. Cover your ears. They have a lot of expectations. They're fourth in the nation. They've planning back in the fall knowing it would be one of their toughest road tests.it's going to be a fun one to watch and we know upsets are possible. Dan Harris wants to put in a submission for game day to come to waterville, Maine to watch the mules in action. If you can submit that request, we would appreciate it. I'll get on the phone right now, see what we can do to get the mules on. By the year 2037. We can make it happen. Maybe they scored a touchdown by then. Don't hold your breath. Have a great time and safe travels and by the way, congratulations on being part of the crew this year.
