Longtime rivals Ohio State (Go Buckeyes!) and the University of Michigan (Go Spartans!) battle it out for the best home makeover in HGTV’s new one-hour special, Raise a Roof: College Challenge (premiering on Saturday, June 22, at 2 p.m. ET/PT). University students will compete in a spirited makeover event that benefits two Rebuilding Together-sponsored homes near their campuses.
Raise a Roof College Challenge
DIY Network’s Anitra Mecadon (Mega Dens) and HGTV’s Chip Wade (Elbow Room) work with teams from each school to renovate their assigned home. Host Chris Grundy (DIY Network’s Blog Cabin and Cool Tools) joins judges to determine which team makes the most significant home improvements and wins the championship bragging rights.

During the showdown, the teams have to fix a safety issue, upcycle an existing item in the home and showcase their school spirit. With the help of Anitra, the Ohio State University team transforms a home in Columbus, Ohio, for a single mother of two young daughters — one of whom is autistic. In the meantime, Chip works with the University of Michigan team to overhaul a home in Ypsilanti, Mich., where a mother and daughter need help to create a spacious and comfortable living environment.
