The University of Colorado Football Team is so popular right now that it’s transcending sports and crossing over into pop culture. The celebrities will be out in force in Boulder this weekend, and that includes one of the biggest stars in the world! 

The highest paid actor in show business and one of the most famous people in the world, Johnson appeared on ESPN’s “The Pat McAfee Show” Friday on the CU Boulder campus.

Johnson walked across the CU Leeds School of Business lawn toward the television program’s set where thousands of students stood watching. Johnson signed autographs as he walked before joining McAfee on ESPN.

Rumors are that “The Rock” plans to stay in Colorado for the weekend to take in the game. 

The 18th-ranked Buffs take on Colorado State Saturday night at 8 p.m. at Folsom Field in Boulder. 

“College GameDay,” “Big Noon Kickoff,” “First Take,” and “SportsCenter” are among the programs broadcasting in Boulder this weekend as well.
