Celebrate this college football season by bringing the stadium experience to your vehicle

AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 8, 2021 – The iconic Goodyear Blimp has become synonymous with college football’s most marquee matchups and superior performances on the field.  And this season, Goodyear and Waze are taking the experience beyond the stadium to the roads as fans drive to games, tailgates and viewing parties throughout the country.

Beginning Oct. 8, 2021 through Jan. 31, 2022, Waze users in the U.S. can select the Goodyear Blimp icon to guide them to their destinations. Drivers can also receive navigation instructions from award-winning college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit as the voice for their trips on Waze. Additionally, all 129 D1 college football stadiums will be marked on the Waze map, making it easier than ever for fans to travel to their favorite stadium.

In celebration of the determination and grit it takes to get to Indianapolis, Goodyear is also hosting a ‘Road to Greatness’ sweepstakes now through Nov. 13. Fans who submit their predictions on the teams who will make it to the championships will have a chance to win tickets to the 2021 Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic and the 2022 CFP National Championship.*
