EL PASO - UTEP wants to light up the small screen on ESPN; but first, they need your help to do it.
A crowd gathered at the Sun Bowl stadium this morning, to show their support for becoming the first campus to be featured in an ESPN College Game Day television commercial. They're competing against colleges across the country, and they need votes to get the spot.
"We want UTEP fans to get behind this and vote for UTEP, and there's a couple of websites you can go to, to vote for UTEP. It's www.facebook.com/collegegameday . The other is www.gamedayvote.com ," said UTEP's athletic director, Jeff Darby.
The voting continues for the next ten days. Fans are allowed one vote per day. The winner will be announced after the contest ends on Wednesday, May 2nd.
