Syracuse vs. Tulane Pre-Game/College Gameday Thread

ESPN's College Gameday is in North Dakota today... oh, and we're also facing Tulane at the Dome.

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Syracuse and Tulane face off at 12:30 p.m. ET today, but there's plenty going on in the meantime. If you weren't aware (you are), ESPN's College Gameday will be taking place from Fargo, ND, home of the North Dakota State Bison today. That's the FCS North Dakota State Bison. Who, once it hits 9 a.m. ET, will have hosted College Gameday one more time than the ACC's Syracuse Orange have...

This is depressing, but also a product of a horrendous slate of games this Saturday. Also, North Dakota State does deserve this for several honest-to-goodness reasons. See below:

  • Won last four games versus FBS opponents (including last year's Big 12 champ Kansas State this season)
  • They're the top-ranked FCS team in the nation and have won two straight national championships
  • This Rodger Sherman feature from the SB Nation main site should cover a lot of the rest
  • And if not... HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THIS:

So this is your thread for all things Gameday and pre-game Syracuse v. Tulane. Hopefully you have the ability to watch the Orange on an actual television, versus your computer. There are also a bunch of other games that start earlier than SU's, which we can also chat about:
