Video: Lee Corso Chooses LSU With 1st College GameDay Headgear Pick Of 2016

Lee Corso and College GameDay are back!

The ESPN hit pregame show kicked off live from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin for the Wisconsin Badgers vs. LSU Tigers. As expected, the GameDay crowd was extremely partisan towards the home state Badgers, and the guest picker — Packers superstar Aaron Rodgers — gave the people what they want by picking Wisconsin.

Corso is not as bullish on the Badgers, however. He chose Heisman candidate Leonard Fournette and the Tigers to roll over the Big Ten West power at one of the sport's most storied stadiums. He did so with Mike the Tiger's head, and appropriately, a cheesehead.

Here's video of the pick:

This may be a decent omen for Badger fans, however. Corso was dreadful in his headgear picks last season, going 3-10. Of course, in 2014 he was 12-5, and he went 13-5 in 2015, so he could be due for a bounce-back prognostication season.

Wisconsin opened as a 9.5-point underdog to the Tigers, and most books have the line at around 13 right now, according to OddsShark.
