Big & Rich, ESPN coming to USF Tuesday

Big & Rich is Coming to This City.
Big & Rich, who performs “Coming to Your City, will tape its concert intro for ESPN’s College GameDay Tuesday at 2 p.m. on the University of South Florida campus at the corner of 50th Street and Holly Drive, just south of Fletcher Ave.
The outdoor concert footage will be used all season for the lead in to ESPN’s College GameDay. Any one is invited to attend. Admission is free and there will be concessions for sale.
Promoters request that people come dressed for an outdoor concert in generic shirts.
“If I have 100 people wearing USF shirts, it’s not good,” said Rick Paiva, vice president of creative services at ESPN. “We’ll have the [Rocky the] Bulls head out there, but this has to work for all games and all locations around the country.”
Tampa was chosen as the site over Los Angeles and Austin, Texas, Paiva said.
“We came here because this was the best place to shoot,” Paiva said.
This fall will be the fourth year, ESPN’s College GameDay has used Big & Rich’s “Coming To Your City” intro.
“We’re refreshing it for this year,” Paiva said.
Just because USF and Tampa is the site for the College GameDay intro, Paiva said it does not guarantee the school would host the popular College GameDay show during the season.
“But if USF keeps winning, we’ll show up,” Paiva said.
