ESPN College GameDay analyst Lee Corso unveiled his national title pick during a season preview show on Saturday. It was a surprising choice.

Corso is going with a Big Ten team to win the 2018 national championship - but he's not picking Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan or Michigan State.

He likes Wisconsin.

Wisconsin is projected to be one of the top 10 teams in the country, but few are picking the Badgers to actually bring home the title. An NFL scout is certainly high on them, though. NFL insider Daniel Jeremiah says that an NFL scout has been raving about what he's seen from the Badgers. They have the best offensive line in the country.

"Talked to a vet scout about his college visits so far— he said Wisconsin is LEGIT. Best OL in the country," he tweeted.

Wisconsin opens its season on Friday against Western Kentucky.
