The game may not be kicking off until 7 pm local time (8 pm ET), but Northwestern fans got after it early and often at College GameDay.
Corso threw on the Brutus Buckeye head, picking Ohio State for the win in tonight's game. No surprise there.
Also no surprise: Brent Musburger in a Wildcats jersey (he's a Northwestern alum).
Bravo, sir. Bravo. That is immaculately done.
Here's that same sign in the wild, with bonus "I love lamp" reference:
Sunrises over lakes are pretty awesome, and if you can't admit that you're a stone cold fool.

OK, that's really funny.
Not only are these totally apt nicknames for the meat-headed-est head coach in the B1G (if not the nation), they're outstanding MST3K references. Watch the whole list of names here.
(BONUS: both this and the Tecmo Bowl sign are via Sippin On Purple commenter @NUHighlights).
Yes, this is a Cardale Jones reference.
It's not embeddable, because why would Instagram be easier to work with, but here's a brief video of Northwestern students going wild in the dark at 5 in the morning.
There's a lot going on here, but the highlights are "I'M SMART," "Urban Meyer Cites Wikipedia," and the brilliantly inexplicable "Braxton? More like... saxophone" in the bottom right.
