College GameDay is in Brookings, South Dakota on Saturday morning for the first time ever. The show is on-campus ahead of the big state battle between South Dakota State and North Dakota State.

The celebrity guest picker this week is new ESPN analyst Pat McAfee. McAfee doesn't have any real ties to the school, but he did play with kicker Adam Vinatieri, who played for the Jackrabbits.

Per usual, the College GameDay staff, including Desmond Howard, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit, made their picks for the biggest games of the week.

It won't shock you to hear that McAfee took the Jackrabbits to win. Corso, however, went against the home crowd and took North Dakota State.
