In celebration of the Goodyear Blimp being named an honorary member of the College Football Hall of Fame, the doors are being opened up, in partnership with Airbnb, for some hospitality in advance of Michigan-Notre Dame on October 26.

The blimp is docked in Mogodore, Ohio, at the Wingfoot Lake Airship Hanger, the world's oldest airship base, which was built in 1917, according to Goodyear.

The blimp will only be available on October 22, 23 and 24, leading up to the Michigan-Notre Dame game, on a first-come, first-served basis starting October 15 on Airbnb.com. The bookings lead up to one of college football's biggest rivalries-the Notre Dame vs. MI game that kicks off on October 26.

As college football celebrates its 150th anniversary, Goodyear has been providing aerial game coverage in 1955 and since then has soared above marquee sports and entertainment events more than 2,000 times since. This is the first time fans will have the opportunity to stay overnight inside the gondola. He will show guests around the property, which includes a football-themed lounge and a lakefront spot with a grill, fire pit, cornhole and other "tailgate essentials".

Forget a hotel-get in the college football spirit inside a blimp instead.

In addition to their stay, guests will also score prime tickets to the big game on the 26th, which will take place at the University of MI in Ann Arbor.

A stay runs only $150 a night-if you're lucky enough to snag a reservation.

It comes with one sofa bed, plus a tailgate setup inside the hangar.

Guests will also receive tickets to the game and official gear. "And, they will get to meet many of our crew and learn about the blimp".

Airbnb suggests fans keep their eye on the listing so they won't "fumble" their chance at booking a stay.
