Crews began setting up for ESPN's "College GameDay" broadcast on Ingalls Mall at the University of Michigan Thursday.

The show is coming to campus Saturday for the second time in three years. ESPN broadcast the show from campus in 2011 before the first night game in U-M history. In that game, the Wolverines took on Notre Dame, just as they will Saturday.

The show generally includes a crowd of fans who come bearing signs and dress in their school's colors.

Saturday's broadcast begins at 9 a.m.

Those seeking an even earlier tuneup for the game can participate in a pep rally at 7 p.m. Friday on the Diag.

With the new student general seating policy and distance from the stadium this would appear to be an awful location.

Keep in mind that this show runs very early in the day before most games. It will be long over by game time at the Big House. So, the location doesn't matter that much. Plus, they want (I believe) a more scenic part of the campus for the show. The area around the stadium isn't that great looking save for the golf course.
