Chris Fowler Recalls When ESPN College Football GameDay Made Williams College Its First (and only) NCAA DIII Stop in 2007

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA – Ten years ago ESPN's College Football GameDay Show hosted by Chris Fowler made its first and only trip to an NCAA DIII school, much to the chagrin of the fans of Auburn and Georgia.

Weston Field was the 150th remote show of ESPN's College Football GameDay.

On the set with Chris Fowler that day were Lee Corso, who donned the Ephs' Purple Cow head when he picked Williams to win, along with Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard.

Williams went on to defeat Amherst that day 20- and as Chris Fowler relates in his video remembrance the Ephs made "The Walk,"

Fowler walked up the sidewalk on Spring Street watching "The Walk" and then was invited into the barbershop to see what Sports Illustrated had dubbed, "The Best Post-Game Tradition in America" in 1992.
