It was already announced but became a formal announcement Tuesday morning.
Mike and Mike will broadcast from Northwestern University on October 4. ESPN, at least some of it, is indeed coming to Evanston, Illinois. Mike Greenberg has already been to Evanston to be a (honorary) team captain for the home opener against Syracuse in the Prose Bowl. Greeny is having a great year as Northwestern’s unofficial representative — or as Golic put it, PR shill.
Greenberg also officially announced he will be the Grand Marshall of Northwestern’s homecoming parade on October 4.
So that leaves us with only one question for homecoming weekend: Will GameDay make its way to Evanston?
With Northwestern looking to go 4-0 and Ohio State dominating its way into Big Ten season (the Buckeyes play the Badgers next week in their Big Ten opener), the possibility continues to increase. Now, we know ESPN will already have a presence on campus for the weekend outside of the game coverage at Ryan Field. The inevitable seems to be coming — so long as neither of us screw it up . . .
Get excited for homecoming. It is going to be a wild weekend.
