ESPN’s College GameDay Draws Record Numbers for Saturday’s Ohio State-Michigan Pregame

How many people tuned into ESPN’s College GameDay Saturday to get ready for the now epic showdown between Ohio State and Michigan.

Turns out a lot. Probably more than you think.

The sports giant today announced that the show, which aired five hours up until kick at 12pm, drew a whopping audience, the most in the show’s history from just outside the Horseshoe down in Columbus.

According to the tweet below from ESPN’s Darren Rovell, 2.6 million people watched the crew leading up to the double overtime thriller eventually won by the Buckeyes.

So you can bet next year before the Ohio State-Michigan game in Ann Arbor, ESPN will once again have their trucks parked right outside again doing their show leading up to yet another Buckeye beatdown of the Wolverines.
