ESPN College GameDay analyst Lee Corso used to keep fans waiting until the end of the network’s flagship college football show to hear their picks for the biggest games of the day. In recent weeks, that seems to have changed.
On Friday morning, analyst Kirk Herbstreit once again spoke with Corso and allowed him to reveal his choices early. It won’t surprise you to learn that Corso is going with an SEC final.
Corso believes Cincinnati will be able to move the ball against Alabama, but in the end, Crimson Tide will prevail by 14 points, just covering the spread seen in most books at the moment.
He believes Michigan vs. Georgia will be tight, but predicts the Bulldogs will lead the Wolverines by three points. That said, he’s not convinced that UGA QB Stetson Bennett is good enough to win his team a national title.
Corso has been picking Georgia to win the national title all season, but his comments about Bennett make it look like he’s hesitating. If both Alabama and Georgia win, we’ll find out next week who they will actually win to take home the trophy in the title game.
Here’s the clip:
It’s finally here, college football fans – college football playoff in all its glory. No. 4 seed Cincinnati will meet No. 1 seed Alabama at 3:30 pm on ESPN.
