Earlier Saturday morning, ESPN's College GameDay kicked off from Lincoln ahead of a huge Big Ten showdown between Nebraska and Ohio State.

Before the game kicks off, Nebraska fans came out in full force to support their team.

The crowd at College GameDay was one of the best in recent history and was praised by host Rece Davis and others at ESPN.

Analyst Kirk Herbstreit also had kind words to say to the Nebraska faithful after the show.

"What a crowd today here in Lincoln for College GameDay!! Massive and as attentive and locked in as any crowd we’ve ever had. Thank you Husker Nation for being such gracious hosts!! Looking forward to calling the game tonight with Ohio State on ABC!" Herbstreit wrote.

Rece Davis called it one of the most "engaged" crowds he's seen during his time with the network.

It's safe to say Nebraska is back under new head coach Scott Frost. The Huskers can make their mark on Saturday night with a huge upset win over the No. 5 team in the country.

Ohio State and Nebraska kick off tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on ABC and called by Herbstreit and Chris Fowler.
