U of L FOOTBALL | Petrino trying to limit ESPN College GameDay distraction

09/12/2016 08:15 PM

The no. 10 University of Louisville football team will have the national spotlight for their noon kickoff with no. 2 Florida State this Saturday. ESPN’s signature college football pregame show, College GameDay will be in place to hype up games across the country, but have deemed U of L vs. FSU the most compelling of them all and will host their entire broadcast from the Louisville campus.

The site of the set has not been officially released at this time, but an email to members of the Petrino Family Foundation states they will be setting up in the lawn in front of the Trager indoor practice facility.
The show draws huge crowds and a lot of attention, so Louisville coach Bobby Petrino is trying very hard to limit the distractions that come with it.
