If you’ve ever walked in on your wife/girlfriend/mother/sister/friend watching the fourth hour of the Today Show, then you’ve witnessed the crazy antics of Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. The dynamic duo could be spending a day at Syracuse University coming up next month.

Syracuse University is a finalist for “Kathie Lee and Hoda Go Back to College” promotion. The news was announced on yesterday’s broadcast, with a series of live shots from the SU campus.

According to The Daily Orange, the university’s student newspaper, producers with NBC wanted the selection to be a surprise, so “the event was kept low-key on campus.”

There was no official announcement, but somehow, about 30 people already knew by 9am.  The newspaper says reporter Sarah Haines and producer Susan Bower were seen handing out fliers to students at about that time, spreading the word in the final hour before Kathie Lee and Hoda’s hour would begin.”

Other finalists include Ohio State, the University of Tennessee, the University of South Florida, Creighton University and Brandeis University.  Gifford and Kotb will anchor their show live from the campus with the most votes.
