After 249 headgear selections, ESPN college football analyst and everyone’s favorite sassy grandpa Lee Corso will reach a milestone on Saturday.
With his first official headgear pick on Oct. 5, 1996, Corso will make his 250th headgear selection this weekend at the TCU-West Virginia game. Corso is 171-78 in headgear picks all-time, and is 7-2 this season. He’s developed meaningful relationships with Puddles the Oregon Duck and North Dakota State’s bison, and usually mixes it up when picking teams without mascots with traditional headpieces.
While Corso doesn’t do the entire show anymore, he’s still must-watch television around 11:50 a.m. ET on College Gameday. The selection segment is always enjoyable, mostly due to Corso and his unpredictability.
Corso is especially great when it involves live animals or firearms. On Saturday in Morgantown, he may steal West Virginia’s Mountaineer mascot’s musket and light a couch on fire and run off into the distance.
Here are some of Corso’s best moments.
