ESPN Petitioned To Visit CMU Vs. WMU For College Game Day

(WWJ) There’s a petition drive to get ESPN’s College Game Day to broadcast from the upcoming Central Michigan-Western Michigan football game.

Junior Josh Scramlin, of Holly, Mich., is spearheading the effort, and he has some powerful supporters, including 97.1 The Ticket host Terry Foster.

“I think it just makes it not as typical a game as College Game Day is used to,” Scramlin said. “It’s pretty easy to go to Alabama, or Florida, or Clemson or Georgia, or Stanford but to come to a school that, we may not be in a power five conference, but we’ve got the power five mentality.”

More than 4,000 people have signed the change.org petition where Scramlin lays out his request, writing, “It’s about time that the MAC gets some national recognition. Let’s see if we can make this happen. #FireUpChips #RowTheBoat.”

He promises to send the petition to ESPN and Michigan leaders including Gov. Rick Snyder ad senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow.

Central drew the eyes of the college football world a few weeks ago when they beat Oklahoma State on what was considered a miracle hail Mary pass.

So, who’s going to win this game?

“Ha! You know the Chips are going to win this game,” a confident Scramlin said.

He admits that getting the ESPN crew out is a long shot, though he believes “it is a legitimate possibility.”
