On Saturday morning, ESPN's College GameDay kicked off from Columbus ahead of the biggest game of the weekend. No. 2 Ohio State hosts No. 8 Penn State in a battle of College Football Playoff contenders.

Before Saturday's slate of games kicks off, the GameDay crew broke down the coming action.

While most the attention is on the Ohio State-Penn State game, the crew made sure to look at other games as well. A big rivalry game takes place in Southern California between USC and UCLA.

During their breakdown of the game, ESPN's Lee Corso suggested this will be Clay Helton's last game as the Trojans head coach.

"No matter what, this is Clay Helton's last game," Corso said.

Now, he could just be speaking literally. This is the final regular season game for the Trojans this year. They have a shot at the Pac-12 title game, if Utah loses, and a bowl game looms for the team as well.

Helton's future with the program was in doubt before Corso's comments. USC hired a new athletic director, which could spell the end for Helton as the Trojans head coach.

But first, he'll try to lead USC to a win over UCLA and move to 8-4 on the season.
