ESPN College GameDay to Philadelphia for Temple vs Notre Dame

Philadelphia PA: There is a lot of excitement on the campus of Temple University as the Temple Owls football team is 7-0 for the first time in school and ranked 21st in the nation and they have a very big game coming up on Halloween night when Temple takes on Notre Dame.

On Monday, ESPN Announced that it is brining its weekly college football national pregame show to Philadelphia on October 31 as #21/22 Temple hosts #9/9 Notre Dame in primetime on ABC at 8PM and the first-ever meeting between two nationally-ranked college football teams in Philadelphia history. The show will originate from Independence Mall, one of the most iconic and historical places in Philadelphia and home of the Liberty Bell.

Temple Director of Athletics Dr. Patrick Kraft “Having ESPN College GameDay come to Philadelphia is tremendous not only for Temple Football, but for the University as a whole as well as the city of Philadelphia, The exposure will shine a light on all of the great things happening at Temple, not just the success of our nationally-ranked football program.  People around the country will get to learn why Temple is one of the hottest universities in the nation, and that Philadelphia is one of the greatest cities in the country.”

Notre Dame comes to Philadelphia for the first time to play Temple and first time at Lincoln Financial Field (they played Navy at Veterans Stadium in 1993).

College Gameday features Temple for the first time but makes its return to Philadelphia (they were at Franklin Field in 2002 for a Penn-Harvard showdown).
