Fans pack PNC Arena for first visit by 'College GameDay''

RALEIGH -- Despite icy roads and below freezing temperatures, fans flocked to PNC Arena Saturday morning to be a part of the first ever ESPN College GameDay held in Raleigh.
Though the show started at 10 a.m., N.C. State fans, along with a handful of North Carolina fans, were waiting hours beforehand.

For Wolfpack senior Ryan Abernathy, the wait to get into the arena started at 4:30 a.m. after being denied a chance at sleeping out on the ice on Friday night.

“We’re ready to beat Carolina,” Abernathy said. “We came out here at 9 p.m. with a tent and sleeping bags and were going to camp out, but security told us to go home. College GameDay’s here, so we had to be here.”

Fans who arrived early were treated to a speech from new football coach Dave Doeren along with performances by the dance team and cheerleading squad.

American Idol winner and N.C. State student Scotty McCreery took a break from recording in Nashville, Tenn., to attend the game and be a part of the event. The Garner native performed “Wagon Wheel,” by Old Crow Medicine Show with Doeren and fullback Logan Winkles on the court.

McCreery also had a prediction for the game.
“I really think the Pack’s got the edge tonight,” he said. “We’re in a slump right now, but I think a big game like this will help us turn it around and get the fire back. If they play with passion, they’ll get the W.”
