This year’s debut isn’t the first time that the show has traveled to cowtown. The show ended the 2014 football season in sundance square for last year’s national championship game at AT&T stadium.
The streets of downtown Fort Worth were closed in order to accommodate the crowd. Admission was free and the event was open to the public.
“Whether you’re a college football fan or not, it’s great to see Sundance Square filled with so many different kinds of people,” said Andrew Davis, an onlooker of the event.
Two big screen TVs behind the hosts projected highlight reels of the teams and live Twitter tweets that fans could send in.
Brad Paisley also appeared as a special guest and performed his new single for the audience. Paisley picked University of Texas to beat Notre Dame.
The co-hosts Chris Fowler and Lee Corso previewed week one of the college football season, including a big match-up at AT&T stadium between Alabama and Wisconsin.
