ESPN's College GameDay picked a special destination for Week 9 of the 2019 college football season. The longtime pregame show is visiting South Dakota State for the first time in the history of the show.

Friday night, a former NFL player turned ESPN analyst revealed he was this week's celebrity guest picker.

Former NFL punter Pat McAfee, who played for the Indianapolis Colts, is now a college football analyst for ESPN. He'll be this week's celebrity guest picker.

McAfee announced the news on Twitter.

"Beyond honored to get the call to be a part of the greatest College GameDay environment in the history of the show tomorrow with the fine folks from South Dakota State," he wrote. "Real life bucket list stuff. Let’s. GOOOOOO."

McAfee has no known ties to South Dakota State, though he's highly entertaining and is a rising personality in the college football world. He should have a fun time today.

ESPN's College GameDay airs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. E.T.
