    The Halloween evening clash between No. 21 Temple and No. 9 Notre Dame football programs is bringing early morning hoopla to downtown Philadelphia. NBC10's Monique Braxton reports from Independence Mall where a crowd of fans are already in place hours before ESPN's College GameDay is set to broadcast live. (Published Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015)

    Halloween could be tricky for motorists in downtown Philadelphia.

    Market Street is closed between Fifth and Sixth Streets until 7 p.m. Saturday because of ESPN's "College GameDay.'' The broadcast will highlight Saturday's game between undefeated Temple University and Notre Dame.

    Much of Sixth Street also is closing between Arch and Market Streets.

    Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Rock ‘n' Roll Half Marathon will take place earlier Saturday. The race will cause rolling shutdowns of portions of the Parkway, Market and Spring Garden Streets, along with 15th to 22nd Streets.

    The race was postponed because of Pope Francis' visit in September.

    SEPTA and PATCO are adding trains.
