Admission and parking is free to all fans with the gates opening at 7:00 p.m. Free food and beverages will also be available to fans in attendance. Cut-ins to the pep rally will be shown live on ESPN's College Football Preview Show.
"This is great for our program," said Tom Jurich. "ESPN will be here and will cut into their college football preview show. If we ever want the opportunity to host College GameDay, we need to have a great showing. But knowing our fans like I do, we'll have no problem making a great impression on national television."
The 10th-ranked Cardinals open the season the following evening against Murray State at 7:30 p.m.
