Vote Maryland for College GameDay Promotion
April 23, 2012
BRISTOL, Conn. - For the first time ever, ESPN will film a College GameDay commercial on a university campus selected by fans and Maryland is in the running for that distinction.
Beginning on Monday, April 23, Terrapin football fans can participate in a social media promotion to have a College GameDay (@CollegeGameDay) spot shot on campus this summer.
Fans can vote once per day until Wednesday, May 2 at GameDayVote.com via computers or smartphones or using the Facebook app at facebook.com/collegegameday. Fans can keep track of the leading schools throughout the promotion and share the contest with friends on various social platforms to drive votes for their university.
Maryland is one of more than 120 Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) programs which will be included in the promotion.
This first-of-its-kind spot will be filmed this summer on the selected campus with real students and begin airing in the fall to promote the 2012 season of College GameDay Built by The Home Depot. The contest highlights College GameDay's unique on-campus presence while building on the successful social vote last season which asked fans to choose a mascot for the ESPN College GameDay Dry Cleaners spot. Now in its 26th year, College GameDay Built by The Home Depot airs Saturdays at 9 a.m. ET on ESPNU and at 10 a.m. ET on ESPN.
