In 2010-2011, the Arizona Wildcats played host to the Washington Huskies in a crucial Pac 10 game. The winner was nearly a lock to win the conference and the other was likely headed for third or fourth place. Arizona won, as we all know, but it wasn't just the win that likely caught the eye of the nation.
McKale Center underwent a White Out that game. The university encouraged everyone to wear white. The student section, media, and everyone from the boosters in the front row to the families sitting at the very top of McKale and it's 14,500 seats. While you would expect some to wear white, most would figure there would be at least a decent amount in the crowd wearing their normal cardinal or navy. Instead, this is what happened.
While ESPN's GameDay was not at this game, it was nationally televised on their network. It appears that they took notice. Why? Because GameDay is coming to Tucson for the first time on January 28 in a rematch of the epic battle between the Wildcats and Huskies.
According to the schedule released earlier today, there will be two shows broadcasted from McKale before the game. One at 7am in Tucson -- and the one fans and students are welcomed to be on air and scream their heads off -- and then one more at 3pm which will be the pre-game show for the matchup. Hopefully the Zona Zoo and the Arizona faithful will show up in full force.
