The University of Washington is getting some big time exposure. Crews with ESPN's travelling road show College Gameday are setting up a major set in the middle of campus, and school leaders know it is a major opportunity.

UW police say they are expecting between 2,000-4,000 people on campus Saturday morning and they plan to have extra officers on duty to manage what could be a university showcase.

The three-hour Saturday morning show previews the day's football action. It's become known for its unscripted banter, live audience and for being a showcase for the host university. Cameras are expected to capture shots from the UW fountain to the football field.

The show airs live at 6 a.m. Saturday, so show up early if you want to see it.
