LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Saturday is the big day.

U of L vs. Florida State at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

The excitement has been building all week. Fans began getting in line as early as 4 a.m. on Saturday.

From fans making signs to pop-up pep rallies, it's not just the big game, it's the fact ESPN's College GameDay is in town, too.

ESPN did a couple on-air hits on Friday for College Football Live.

But, the main event was in no doubt College Game Day's Lee Corso. The former U of L coach still means a lot to the city, and knows that heading into a show where he'll have to make a winning pick is going to be tough. "The good news, I'm here. The bad news, I've got to pick a winner. It's been my old school Florida State, where I coached and played and this school Louisville which gave me a chance, after 11 years as an assistant coach," Corso said.
