Evanston was home to the college football world the weekend of Oct. 5, 2013, as No. 16 Northwestern played host to No. 4 Ohio State for the Wildcats’ Homecoming game. ESPN’s Mike & Mike broadcast from campus on Friday, Oct. 4, and the following day, Northwestern was the site of ESPN’s College Gameday broadcast.
Before the lights went up on College Gameday, a collection of Medill students were able to go behind-the-scenes of Gameday. Students toured the production truck, spent time on set and spoke with host Chris Fowler.
