SALT LAKE CITY – All eyes were on the state of Utah as College GameDay rolled in to watch the Utes host the Oregon Ducks and ESPN’s Pat McAfee can’t stop raving about it.
Yes, the game itself was unimpressive for the Utes, but the community showed out with passion, enthusiasm, energy and of course and amazing backdrop that left a big impression on McAfee.
The ESPN talent chatted with Adam Schefter about his first-ever experience in Utah and how he needs to come back to the Beehive State to visit soon.

Pat McAfee’s Glowing Review Of Utah
There is no denying, Utah the team and Utah the state is growing their national presence at a rapid rate and McAfee is one of the latest to get on board.
“I’m not a skier or really do the snow stuff so I never really had a chance to go to Utah for any reason,” McAfee said. “I need to go back. It is awesome. People were so kind- obviously everybody there was so kind to all of us. We get put in these ridiculous situations where people are normally going to be nice to us, but there were other situations- everybody was nice. The views were insane. The weather was fantastic. I thought about picking up some ski poles to go skiing up there just so I could be a part of the Salt Lake community. I loved it Schefty. I didn’t expect that.”
