NBC sent the Sunday Night Football bus to town for the big game; it made a stop at Concordia University in Mequon on the way to Green Bay.

The bus is a fan favorite and Concordia students and fans are excited that it stopped by. Everyone was striking poses with it.

"It's just huge," Aaron Preston said as he stood on the 44-foot bus.

Features range from an Aaron Rodger’s locker replica to fans getting a chance to become a sports broadcaster for the day.

"We want every opportunity to we can to come and embrace the fans and show them how great the NFL is," Sean Martin, a tour manager with Sunday Night Football said.

A new feature this year is the "You've got the Power" selfie mirror that contains messaging that raises awareness of women's empowerment in sports.

"Well it means a lot because as women we can do a lot," said Elizabeth Johnson, a prospective student at Concordia.

"Being able to have the power to do something is big,” she said.

Concordia University’s President Dr. Patrick Ferry says this isn’t the first time the NFL has been on his campus.

"Concordia has an interesting history with professional football," he said. "A few years ago we were the host for the Rams when they had their training camps so it's a good place for the NFL to make a stop once in a while."
