ESPN’s College GameDay will be live from Louisville this week. Who will be the celebrity picker for the game between the Cardinals and Clemson Tigers?

Through two weeks of the college football season, there have been several marquee matchups that have been fun to watch. ESPN’s College GameDay has been on hand for two great weeks of football thus far in both Atlanta and Columbus. This week, the crew will head out to Louisville, to watch the Cardinals host the Clemson Tigers.

These two teams had an epic battle last season, that saw Deshaun Watson, in the end, get the better of his Heisman counterpart, Lamar Jackson. Watson might be in the NFL now, but this is still a huge ACC battle between two top teams.

Both of these schools know what a win over the other will mean and they want to be able to get a leg up on their season with a big conference win. That means that trying to pick a winner in this one is not going to be the easiest of tasks at all. Lee Corso is ultimately going to put on a mascot head and a celebrity will make their pick.

That brings up the question of who will be the celebrity picker this week? There are of course several good options for that decision.

Papa John, of course, is the easiest pick considering the game is being played in Louisville where the stadium is named after him. On the Clemson side of things, Deshaun Watson would be a great choice as well. The Houston Texans have already played this week and Watson is already in nearby Cincinnati.

Another potential option would be one mentioned by Jeffrey Lee Puckett of The Courier-Journal. Top R&B star and Louisville native, Bryson Tiller, is on hand for a show this week in his hometown. The show has featured several top musical talents before so this pick also makes a ton of sense.

In the end, this is going to be a tough pick for the person that gets the honor of joining the guys. The defending National Champions taking on Lamar Jackson in his place. This is a game no one will want to miss.

Update: Louisville men’s basketball head coach Rick Pitino is the guest picker. I guess Papa John was busy today.
