According to an ESPN press release, “The GameDay bus features lounges with leather sofas and reclining captain’s chairs, a galley kitchen and rest room. The bus has seven HD televisions in the front, a rear lounge and five receivers in the rear lounge so the GameDay team can watch five different games at once in order to collect information for their shows.
GameDay starts at 11 a.m. Saturday. Admission is free, according to a UD press release, and fans will be admitted to the Frericks Center on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fans can begin lining up at 7:30 a.m. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.
