Lawmakers love college football Saturday

Two members of Congress took to Twitter on Thursday to share their plans on this college football Saturday.

Rep. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), who is running for Senate next year, stopped by the University of Missouri's homecoming parade. The Tigers host the third-ranked Texas Longhorns later tonight:

Meanwhile, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) appeared on ESPN's College GameDay in a pre-taped plug for his alma mater Brigham Young University. The ESPN crew appeared live from Provo, Utah, home of sixteenth-ranked BYU, head of their match-up with the tenth-ranked Texas Christian University Horned Frogs:
