College GameDayis in Fort Worth, Texas for Week 1 of the 2019 college football season. No. 16 Auburn and No. 11 Oregon will be squaring off in a highly-anticipated SEC/Pac-12 showdown. Taking to Twitter on Friday, Auburn legend Bo Jackson revealed that he will be the guest picker for the first 2019 edition of ESPN's beloved show.

It's already going to be a special broadcast for Auburn fans, as longtime announcer Rod Bramblett - who died in a car crash earlier this year - will get a special tribute. But Auburn fans will get another exciting treat as well.

It is an exciting pick for Tiger fans, ahead of what might be Saturday's best game. Jackson announced that he'll be on the show this morning.

Bo Jackson is arguably the biggest star in the history of Auburn football. He was a three-time All-SEC selection and a two-time consensus All-American.

In 1985 he won the Heisman Trophy after rushing for 1,786 yards and 17 touchdowns.

And he did all of that while simultaneously lettering in baseball.

Jackson would go on to star in both the NFL and Major League Baseball, going No. 1 overall in the 1986 draft. He played four seasons for the Oakland Raiders and was an All-Star outfielder for the Kansas City Royals.

The Auburn Tigers will take on the Oregon Ducks at AT&T Stadium in Arlington at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. The game will air on ABC.
