Pokemon Go is consuming the nation like wildfire, and its tentacools (get it) have reached all the way into the college football world. Since college football is a place where adults try to look cool for high school kids, this is not particularly surprising. Here are the places that have joined the wave thus far.

We'll let you in on Thursday.
Notre Dame: Pitched a stadium tour with a Tentacool.
Ohio State: Brutus Buckeye briefly teased catching an adorable lil Eevee in the Horseshoe, before quickly deleting the tweet and then repeatedly warning the public not to try to break into Ohio State facilities to catch Pokemon.
Oklahoma State: Mike Gundy tweeted out a POKE pun accompanied by a picture I am almost certain he did not take himself.
Texas A&M: The school invited people into Kyle Field to try to catch Pokemon. There was some demand.

USC: Used a Pokemon to sort of ask people to buy tickets.
Washington State is a holdout, though, at least at the coaching level. In response to a question by SB Nation's Steven Godfrey, Mike Leach came out in favor of "throwing dirt clods at construction sites" over the video game:
