Kirk Herbstreit wanted to make sure Texas fans showed up for “College GameDay” in Austin.

In a video tweeted Friday, Herbstreit and Rece Davis discussed Alabama’s road presence in Austin as 20.5-point favorites. Herbstreit called on Texas fans to show up strong for the ESPN pregame show.

“Alabama’s just one of those schools that travels well. So Texas fans, you better get out here early and represent,” Herbstreit said. “We’re looking forward to a wild scene. Early kick, come out and have a lot of fun. Let’s just create an unbelievable atmosphere.”
