BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - ESPN broadcaster Scott Van Pelt made good on his promise to wear South Dakota State University garb on SportsCenter to make up for mistakenly referring to the school in an earlier broadcast as San Diego State University, a school with the same acronym.

Van Pelt donned a South Dakota State sweat shirt and cap on his Wednesday broadcast to make amends.

Van Pelt noted that the move was “painful” because the SDSU men’s basketball team is playing his alma mater, Maryland, in the NCAA Tournament on Friday.

Van Pelt said he was “wearing the enemy’s gear” and begged Maryland to win the game.
