MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia University students have built a tent city next to ESPN's College GameDay broadcast site and say they're determined to make sure the state is presented in a positive light.

No. 16 West Virginia hosts No. 2 Louisiana State on Saturday.

Students say there's a lot of pressure from both their peers and the WVU administration to behave well.

They worry bad conduct will reflect poorly on all of West Virginia.

ESPN's daylong coverage of the nation's college football games begins 9 a.m. Saturday.

Mountaineer fans were camped out in dozens of tents more than a day beforehand, some since Thursday night.

Students say it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

It's also a chance to present positive images of West Virginians on national television.

ABC will air the 8 p.m. game.
