Of the last 215 College GameDays, A WSU flag has been flown. But ESPN is always 3 or 4 years late on a trend, so they never held their show in Pullman. This weekend in an attempt to be cool ESPN is coming to Pullman and folks are excited.

According to Pullman radio:
The City of Pullman has declared an emergency to help deal with the massive crowd expected for this weekend’s historic ESPN College Gameday visit to Washington State University. City council approved the emergency declaration on Tuesday night. The vote allows Pullman Transit buses to help move fans around campus on Saturday.
Pullman police are even getting in on the action:
Years later, @CollegeGameDay solicits the help of an incredibly skilled police agency to help track down #WSUPopcornGuy, because they simply can't bring the big show back to #ThePromisedLand without his help. #PullmanProud #GameDayPullman #GoCougs #AttemptToLocate #JustForFun pic.twitter.com/LVj9vgWBXm

Just in case you forgot the popcorn guy:
Pretty cool story. And honestly the Cougars are a great story this year, after the tragedy of losing their starting QB who took his own life, to the fact that the Cougars lost their athletic director, and many assistant coaches their 5-1 start and playing the #12 Oregon Ducks the Cougs have a chance to make some noise. The power of Mike Leach.
