Every week of the college football season, ESPN's College GameDay chooses one site to visit. Sometimes, there are many games that are well-worth watching, but GameDay brings with it a level of excitement that is unmatched during normal matches between two teams.
For starters, if GameDay comes to your stadium, it means that the game has major implications. More often than not, it means there are dire consequences for either team if it loses that particular tilt.
GameDay isn't going to come watch an 11-0 Ohio State team take on an 0-11 Michigan squad when there are two undefeated teams battling in another conference.
If GameDay is at your venue, then you're in for a real treat. ESPN announcers, reporters and their entourages are all there, and they make your game larger than life.
When your game is already a heated rivalry match, the adrenaline and excitement are oozing from every nook and cranny of the campus in epic proportions.
Here are the 12 best College GameDay atmospheres in college football.
