Saturday morning, it was showtime

More than 30,000 fans showed up for the live show Saturday morning - an ESPN College GameDay record.

Throughout the show, ESPN's analysts discussed UCF's place in the college football world, and debated whether the Knights should get a shot at the College Football Playoff.

Head coach Josh Heupel joined Maria Taylor on set.

And punter Mac Loudermilk was the subject of a feature with Taylor as well.

Tom Rinaldi put UCF Football's nation-best winning streak into perspective in his customary fashion.
