Big news for Mountain West fans coming out of ESPN's KESN 103.3 FM radio today in Dallas. Kirk Herbstreit was a guest on Randy Galloway's show and stated the following:
We might be down in Fort Worth next week on the 14th. If Ohio State looses in Happy Valley Saturday, then I think there is a good chance that we are going there. They deserve it, they are playing great football.
Here a segment from the end of the interview when Herbstreit stated the quote. Audio after the jump.
If this happens, it would be ESPN College GameDay's third trip to the Mountain West Conference this season. This would be huge! After years of Mountain West fans feeling disrespected by the "World Wide Leader in Sports," ESPN is showing the world that they still care about, and respect the Mountain West.
It looks like they are deciding between two big games, with major BCS implications. Those are:
#4 Iowa at #16 Ohio State
#14 Utah at #6 TCU
Mountain West fans should be rooting for the 11th ranked Nittany Lions to defeat the 16th ranked Buckeyes at home this Saturday.
