College GameDay Announces Guest Picker For Week 1

Saturday morning, ESPN College GameDay will be in South Bend for a game with College Football Playoff implications. No. 12 Notre Dame hosts No. 14 Michigan in a non-conference battle.

Thursday night we learned who the celebrity guest picker will be for the show. ESPN announced that country singer Luke Bryan will join the GameDay analysts on Saturday morning.

Bryan is one of the most well-known country singers in the country.

Here's the announcement.

It's an interesting choice from the Worldwide Leader. Usually the network chooses someone with a connection to the school and Luke Bryan doesn't appear to have one with Notre Dame.

The country singer attended Georgia State before moving to Nashville to pursue music.

Meanwhile, some were clamoring for ESPN to allow Mike Golic to join the College GameDay crew to pick for his alma mater. Not to be.

The show will kick off at 9:00 a.m. ET on ESPN.
