Bring ESPN GameDay to Clemson
For the first time in its history, ESPN will film a College GameDay commercial on a university campus selected by fans. Beginning Tuesday, college football fans across the country can participate in a social media promotion to have a College GameDay spot shot on their campus this summer.
The contest runs until May 10 (11:59 p.m. ET). Fans can vote once per day for their university at GameDayVote.com via computers or smartphones or using the Facebook app at facebook.com/collegegameday. Fans can keep track of the leading schools throughout the promotion and share the contest with friends on various social platforms to drive votes for their university. As of Tuesday night, Clemson was in 4th place behind Nebraska, Texas A&M and Washington State.
This first-of-its-kind spot will be filmed this summer on the selected campus with real students and begin airing in the fall to promote the 2012 season of College GameDay Built by The Home Depot. The contest highlights College GameDay's unique on-campus presence while building on the successful social vote last season, which asked fans to choose a mascot for the ESPN College GameDay Dry Cleaners spot.
Now in its 26th year, College GameDay Built by The Home Depot airs Saturdays at 9 a.m. ET on ESPNU and at 10 a.m. ET on ESPN.
