NBC 5's Marc Fein takes a tour of the Sunday Night Football bus as it tours North Texas ahead of Sunday Night Football on NBC when the Cowboys take on the Giants.
NBC Sports rolled their brand-new Sunday Night Football bus into North Texas this week -- ahead of Sunday night's Cowboys-Giants season opener in Arlington.
While in town, the bus made a quick stop at NBC 5's Fort Worth studio Friday morning before heading toward Southlake for the Carroll Dragons' game against Midland Lee.
Over the weekend, the bus can also be seen at "Heads Up Football" youth games at The Warren Park Complex in Frisco on Saturday morning and at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth that night. On Sunday, it'll head to Arlington where it'll be parked at AT&T Stadium.
At each location, fans can visit and tour the bus. Once onboard, fans and visitors can tweet and post photos of themselves in the broadcast positions occupied by Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth from a mock SNF studio.
Also on board, guests can play Madden 25 on the Xbox and see the 2012 and 2013 Sunday Night Football -- a Wilson football signed by the players of the week, along with team helmets, jerseys and other collectibles.
Also, along for the ride will be four SNF “Fans of the Week” chosen based on their social media activity, team pride and SNF fandom. In each home market, the SNF “Fans of the Week” will be given a VIP experience that includes a trip on the bus and game tickets. Winners have already been selected for Week 1, but the bus will be back in North Texas when the Cowboys host the Redskins in October ... so be ready to hashtag #SNF if you want special access.
During the 2013 season, the bus will cross the country at least three times while driving over 17,000 miles. The crew will make 18 game day stops over 17 weeks and will make four additional stops leading up to each game in each host city.
