The Drive to the National Championship in Iowa City

ESPN, partnered with Direct TV provides the Drive for the National Championship Bus. Today it stopped in Iowa City, Iowa.

The bus travels around the country covering college football. Other stops this week were Columbus, OH, Columbia, MO and following today's stop will be Lincoln, NE for this weekend's Texas - Nebraska Big XII match-up.

Coaches and players sit in the studio (see below) and are interviewed by members of the ESPN College Football Live show. Today Kirk Ferentz stepped into the seat for the interview to be seen today at 2:30 (CT).
A small studio is set up in the back with many monitors that can show the many different college football games every Saturday. A tiny remote camera faces the coach or player who sits in the gray chair below. The large monitor in the back shows playback of the interview.
A small dubbing station is set up to allow for any production needs the two-man crew may encounter.
