After playing “The Eyes of Texas” before making his pick, Lee Corso went with the ole switcharoo and put on the Tiger mascot head. Special guest picker Matthew McConaughey then proceeded to take it off.
As expected, the UT Minister of Culture himself went with his Horns. But as for the rest of the Gameday crew, David Pollack and Desmond Howard went with the Tigers.
Alongside his play-by-play partner Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit will be calling tonight’s game from the booth, so he was unable to make a pick.
Since 2003, Corso holds an all-time 11-6 headgear record when picking LSU. He’s 7-4 when picking Texas.
