Want the Goodyear Blimp at your favorite college football matchup? All you have to do is vote.
For the second time this year Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is teaming up with ESPN’s SportsNation to allow the fans the opportunity to decide which of this weekend’s college football games will receive aerial coverage from the Goodyear Blimp. Voters can vote on Goodyear’s website or through ESPN’s web portal for one of three games taking place on November 24th — Notre Dame @ USC; Michigan @ Ohio State; or Florida @ Florida State.
“ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports and Goodyear, an innovative leader in the tire industry, and known for providing incredible aerial coverage for the world’s greatest sporting events, have teamed up to get college football fans in the action,” said Garth Ely, Goodyear’s director of brand marketing. “We are excited and proud to offer the unique opportunity to give the fans control of the Goodyear Blimp to decide which of these games is Blimpworthy.”
The ‘Blimpworthy’ poll closes next Monday, November 19th, and the voting results will be announced on ESPN2’s First Take program at 10 a.m. on the 19th.
