Pat McAfee and ESPN's Thursday night college football crew went full Anchorman for Halloween.

We often see some pretty interesting ESPN Halloween costumes, and that continued this year. One of the best came on their college football coverage of West Virginia-Baylor, where Adam Amin, Matt Hasselbeck and Pat McAfee dressed up as characters from 2004’s Anchorman, with McAfee even letting out a full Champ Kind “Whammy!” during the introductions:

Earlier in the day, one of the best studio show gimmicks came from High Noon‘s Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre, who dressed as Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon from Pardon The Interruption:

As for PTI, Kornheiser and Wilbon dressed as Chicago Bears’ coach Matt Nagy and Brooklyn Nets’ point guard Kyrie Irving:

Meanwhile, over on Around The Horn:

That Old Town Road bit came with a fun extra video:

On NFL Live, things got a bit more Pixar-y (corporate synergy!):

And Field Yates went all out with his Gardner Minshew costume, even bringing a hammer:

And Katie Nolan dressed as “Jared Goth”:
