GameDay Back at Lillis

The November morning may have been cold and damp, but team spirit--not to mention pure adrenaline--did a good job of warming the crowd gathered to watch Lee Corso and the gang broadcast ESPN College GameDay from the University of Oregon's Memorial Quad. Starting in the predawn darkness, fans showed off their handmade signs while cheerleaders provided high-voltage dazzle. As the skies lightened, the University of Oregon marching band greeted the Duck and his motorcycle. On the ESPN set, five-year-old Braden Pape managed to outdo his 2011 GameDay debut by taking the stage as the show's guest picker. This is the second year in a row that the Lillis Business Complex has served as the show's backdrop, so it looks like the start of a great new tradition--one that we here at the Lundquist College can definitely get behind.
