ESPN College GameDay is visiting Penn State on Saturday ahead of the Nittany Lions' big clash against Big Ten heavyweight Ohio State. They found a very appropriate celebrity guest picker to celebrate the occasion.

Trace McSorley, who played at Penn State from 2014-2019 and holds numerous records for the Nittany Lions, will be making selections along with Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Lee Corso & Co. It's a sure bet he'll go with Penn State to win.

McSorley, after finishing his college career, was drafted in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. He's been serving as a backup signal-caller with the franchise since.

McSorley was a three-time second All-Big Ten team selection. He helped Penn State win the 2016 Big Ten title.

Penn State is looking for a huge bounce-back win after falling to Indiana in heartbreaking fashion last week. The Nittany Lions were considered a contender for the Big Ten title before the season started - and they'll have to beat Ohio State to keep that hope alive.

Ohio State, meanwhile, likely needs to run the table given the fact that it only has nine games scheduled. The Buckeyes need a win to keep pace with Alabama and Clemson.

McSorley will join the program around 11:50 AM ET. We'll see how he does making his picks.
