The Big Ten Network will be bringing its Saturday morning studio show, “BTN Tailgate,” to College Park on Oct. 14, the network announced Monday.

This show is BTN’s version of ESPN’s “College GameDay,” which “BTN Tailgate will start at 10 a.m. ET. Kickoff time hasn’t been announced yet.
The studio will be set up on the football practice fields, where students and fans usually tailgate in the mornings (they’ll probably still do that, just with signs and dreams of getting on TV). It’s tough to predict the atmosphere that morning, but if Maryland keeps its strong start going, College Park should be a lively place.
