Bring ESPN College GameDay to Central Michigan vs. Western Michigan

This petition had 2,089 supporters

Central Michigan University and Western Michigan University are facing off in a game at Kelly/Shorts Stadium in Mount Pleasant, MI on Saturday, October 1st. This game is shaping up to be one of the most exciting MAC football games in recent history. But a visit from ESPN's College GameDay would make it all the more reason to get even more excited. These two teams may be in a mid-major conference, but both have earned their keep this season and are worthy of playing in front of the entire nation.

The teams are off to incredible starts and are both currently undefeated; CMU got a nearly impossible win and pulled off what might just be the best play of the year against the 22nd ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys in Week 2. WMU has beaten two Big Ten teams in Northwestern and Illinois (in fact, they crushed Illinois 34-10). There is so much excitement surrounding this game that it's almost indescribable.  At the time this petition was written:

  •  Both school's QB's are ranked by ESPN as being in the top 30 in the nation, with WMU's Zach Terrell at #16 and CMU's Cooper Rush at #26.
  • Cooper Rush has claimed 2/3 MAC Offensive Player of the Week awards this season
  • CMU's defense is ranked 16th in the nation
  • WMU's offense is ranked 17th in the nation
  • Both teams have been receiving more and more AP votes as the weeks go on

Both teams are serious about this season's success. Central Michigan University, as well as its student population, are ready to host College Game Day. With a rich football tradition (Antonio Brown, Thomas Rawls, Eric Fisher, JJ Watt, and Joe Staley all played at CMU) and a dedicated fan base (Andre Drummond came to CMU's game last week), we are more than ready to be put on a national stage.

The Chippewas and Broncos may not be in a power-five conference, but they both have the power-five mentality fit to be the home of ESPN's College GameDay for a Saturday. So join in me asking College GameDay to come see what all the excitement is about in the State of Michigan. It'll be a decision you will not regret.
