It's The 20th Anniversary Of Lee Corso Picking with Head Gear On GameDay

By Ty Duffy

This week is the 20th anniversary of Lee Corso using head gear on ESPN’s College GameDay. The first pick came when he donned the Brutus head to pick Ohio State to beat Penn State on October 5, 1996 (Final Score: Buckeyes 38-7 Nittany Lions). Since then, Corso had made 281 picks in 75 cities and worn 55 different types of head gear.

From ESPN’s Chris Fallica: Corso is dead on picking USC games. He has chosen the right result all 21 times, opting for the Trojans in 16 of those games. Stay away from Georgia (Corso is 0-4 picking them) and Oklahoma opponents (Sooners are 11-4 when Corso picks against them).

For this weekend, Corso is 3-2 picking Tennessee, 1-1 this season. The Vols have only won four of 11 games when Corso has picked against them. Texas A&M is 0-4 in when Corso has picked that game. He backed the Aggies twice and the opponent twice.

We included a sampling of Corso picking games below.
