Two of college football’s top teams face off this weekend under the lights when Michigan State plays host to Oregon. The matchup of the #5 Spartans and #7 Ducks is one of the most talked about matchups of the second week of the 2015 college football season. The game itself is just one reason that both teams fans will want to come out to support their team. Fans on both sides of the ball will want to come out to support their team because ESPN’s College GameDay Built by The Home Depot will broadcast live on site ahead of the game, which is the game of the week on ABC’s Saturday Night Football on ABC presented by Wells Fargo.
