Washington City Declares State of Emergency Due to ESPN's College Gameday

When a city or state declares a state of emergency, it's usually due to a natural disaster or a similar situation. But one Washington city is declaring a state of emergency due to an ESPN TV show.

This weekend Washington State University is hosting ESPN's College Gameday, a Saturday morning show previewing the weekend in college football and is taped live on a college campus. The show draws thousands of fans who stand in the background holding signs and otherwise celebrating that they've been chosen to host this program.

However Washington State University says it doesn't have enough buses to transport the amount of people they expect to draw for this weekend's College Gameday as well as the game later that day against Oregon. The university couldn't acquire enough private buses for the task, so they've asked the city of Pullman, Washington to help out.

So the Pullman City Council declared a state of emergency to allow the city's public buses to be used to transport people around the campus on Saturday.

According to an ESPN historian, it is the first time in the history of College Gameday that an emergency declaration has been made.
