ESPN College GameDay is visiting Baton Rouge on Saturday for a top 15 showdown in the SEC as the No. 13 LSU Tigers play host to the No. 1-ranked defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide.
This week’s celebrity guest picker was none other than hip hop artist Lil Wayne, a New Orleans native who has previously made countless appearances on ESPN to share his love of sports, and there was no questioning which direction he would go with his pick for the game of the day.
The panel was split on a number of the picks, but would there be a consensus for the headlining matchup between LSU and Alabama? Which headgear would Corso roll with in Week 10?
For the big game, Desmond Howard went against the home crowd and rolled with the Crimson Tide. Lil Wayne, suited up in his custom LSU jersey, went with the Tigers. Kirk Herbstreit also went against the LSU faithful, leading up to Corso’s pick.
When it was all said and done, Corso teased he would go with Big Al for the 26th time and serenaded the home crowd with Sweet Home Alabama, before pulling the old switcheroo and going with LSU to upset Alabama in Death Valley.
Kickoff between the Crimson Tide and Tigers is set for 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
