Kansas was our best chance. But I don't see any games on our schedule jumping out and bringing Gameday.

I think the only slim chance we have this year is if us and Rutgers are both undefeated and/or highly ranked going into that game. I'd love to kick their monkey asses alll over RayJay in front of a Gameday crowd,but like I said, I think that's quite a slim chance. None of our other home opponents (save Kansas, and that's already a Friday night) have any sort of luster. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see us at the road team on Gameday from WVU.

Doubtful...

The same weekend as the Rutgers game are the following:

#1 Georgia at #10 Auburn

#2 Ohio State at #20 Illinois

#11 Texas at #14 Kansas

However, if Rutgers and USF are both undefeated... then we might have a chance.

Where has Gameday been the last couple years on "Championship Saturday"?  Do they go to one of the conference championship games or to a one-off game?

The last few years have been:

2007: Big XII Championship

2006: ESPN Studios

2005: UCLA/USC

2004: SEC Championship

2003: No broadcast?

Those rankings can and will change by Nov 15.

Yeah but you're using pre-season rankings.  Presume us and RU are undefeated heading into our showdown, well UGA probably won't be #1 with their gauntlet schedule before that weekend, KU would be lucky if they're ranked, and Auburn's got a brutal schedule this year too.

Those three have a shot, but if we're both undefeated you're probably staring at a top 10 USF and top 15 RU team.  That would be right up there in terms of luster especially when you recall that RU soldout and stormed the field when they beat us last year and the margin of victory the past two years has been less than 3 pts.

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."
