To this point, I have shot four college games and week three of college football would be no different! I would be shooting two college games in one day at two different stadiums. My first game was a noon kick off in West Lafayette for the Eastern Michigan vs Purdue game. I arrived to the stadium around 8:30am a little early so I took a little nap in my car due to not catching a lot of sleep the previous night.
Following the IndyCar race in Baltimore Jackson Helms Smith and my self packed the car to head to Blacksburg, VA. We left around 9pm which should put is at the hotel around 3am. If you have ever been to the Baltimore/DC area it’s extremely confusing to drive around, five lane highways and the exits are sometimes to your left and sometimes to the right which makes it very confusing. So needless to say we got lost and made a giant loop around DC before we actually made our way to Blacksburg, VA.
Following the Boise State at Michigan State game Friday night, I decided it was time to pull the impossible! Drive 453 miles overnight from East Lansing, MI to State College, PA to shoot Bill O’Brien leading the Nittany Lions onto the field for the first time in 2012.
My first college football game of the season I was scheduled to shoot Boise State at Michigan. The game was scheduled for 8:00pm on Friday. I headed up to East Lansing Michigan around 3:00pm which should allow me plenty of time but as soon as I got to I-96 I was at a standstill. I was about an hour away and I wasn’t making any progress. After sitting in a parking lot I got off a exit and made my way through back roads until I got to the stadium.
