ESPN’s College GameDay Built by the Home Depot (9 a.m.-noon ET, ESPN) will visit West Virginia on Saturday – the site of the No. 20 Mountaineers game against No. 7 TCU (3:30 p.m., ABC) – where analyst Lee Corso will be making his 250th headgear selection on college football’s longest running and most celebrated pregame show.
Known for his infectious personality, as well as his knowledgeable, opinionated and entertaining analysis, Corso has become known for ending every show with his mascot headgear prediction, choosing which team he thinks will win GameDay’s featured matchup by donning the headpiece of the school’s mascot.
“Coach Corso is a legend. There are very few must-see moments in television, and we are lucky enough to have one every Saturday morning,” said Lee Fitting, ESPN senior coordinating producer. “Regardless of what Coach does at the end of the show, it brings a smile to your face – what more could you want?”
Corso joined ESPN in 1987 and is the only original GameDay on-air personality (he was a contributor in 1987-88 and joined as an analyst in 1989).
Dating back to his first official headgear pick on Oct. 5, 1996, Corso is 171-78 in headgear picks. He is 7-2 this season.
