Who did Lee Corso pick on ESPN's College GameDay today?

These are the biggest stadiums in college football

Lee Corso has been many things — a college football coach, Burt Reynolds' college roommate and America’s favorite college football lovin’ crazy grandfather on ESPN GameDay where he makes his 'headgear picks' each week on location during College Football Saturday.

A new season is here, and we will be tracking all of Corso's picks right here. The coronavirus pandemic won't allow for the usual crowds, but the ESPN crew still plans on traveling to gameday locations, starting Sept. 12.

Below, we've also included a history of all of Corso's picks from 2018 and 2019.

Track all of Corso's 2020 picks below:

Week 8: Minnesota vs. Michigan

With the Big Ten back in play, GameDay was in Minneapolis for Week 8 ahead of No. 18 Michigan vs. No. 21 Minnesota. Corso went with the Wolverines.

Week 7: Alabama vs. Georgia

Corso not only donned an elephant head in his pick of Alabama over Georgia — he then stepped onto a giant (fake) elephant set up in his Orlando backyard.

Week 6: Clemson vs. Miami (Fla.)

No. 1 Clemson was Corso's choice in Week 6, marking the first time he went against Miami in three headgear pick opportunities this year.

Week 5: Georgia vs. Auburn

Corso picked Georgia ahead of its 125th all-time meeting with SEC rival Auburn. Part of his rationale? Corso claimed that Auburn doesn't allow him to wear the school's mascot head. "I've got no other choice."

Week 4: Miami (Fla.) vs. Florida State

Corso went with Miami for the second straight week, picking the Canes over rival Florida State.

Week 3: Louisville vs. Miami (Fla.)

Ahead of the only ranked matchup of the weekend, Corso rocked the head of Sebastian the Ibis, picking Miami to beat host Louisville.

Week 2: Wake Forest vs. Clemson

For his first headgear pick of the season, Corso went against host Wake Forest in favor of preseason No. 1 Clemson.

Week 1: Bristol, Connecticut (ESPN Studios)

The GameDay crew didn't hit the road for Week 1 of the 2020 season, but they still made their picks for Saturday's top games, as well as Monday night's BYU-Navy Labor Day matchup. There was no headgear pick this week, but Corso did reveal his CFP predictions: Alabama beating Clemson in the title game, with Notre Dame and Oklahoma also making the semifinals.

Track all of Corso's 2019 picks below:

College Football Playoff semifinals: LSU vs. Oklahoma — Ohio State vs. Clemson

Week 3 - Iowa vs. Iowa State

It was Gameday's first time in Ames, Iowa, and Corso went with the home team. Iowa State is the pick in this in-state rivalry game.
