College GameDay will emanate from Clemson vs. Texas A&M on Saturday morning. Who will Lee Corso choose with his latest headgear pick?
College GameDay returned to ESPN on Sept. 1, with the regular cast around to break down the week’s games. It included Lee Corso, the former coach and long-time analyst, who made his first headgear selection of the 2018 college football season between Notre Dame and Michigan.
In Week 2, College GameDay will travel to College Station, TX, for a non-conference matchup between Clemson and Texas A&M. Both teams entered 2018 with high expectations, so who will shake up the other’s path to the top of the college football landscape?
Corso, as always, will choose this game at the end of the show. Given his flair for the dramatic, this should be a fun selection that either makes the Texas A&M crowd happy or angers them before the day’s kickoff.
The Aggies dominated Northwestern State in Week 1, 55-7, without a doubt about their first win under the new head coach, Jimbo Fisher. Games won’t be as easy as this, however, especially against a perennial championship contender, Clemson.
The Tigers rolled over Furman in Week 1, 48-7, to keep their No. 2 spot in the college football rankings. As long as Dabo Swinney’s team remains perfect, they will hold a top four spot, enough to make the 2019 College Football Playoff.
If Clemson defeats Texas A&M, they have an intriguing road ahead. With Syracuse, Georgia Southern, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest ahead, an early perfect record to get mid-way through the season would be a success, before the schedule rises with Louisville and South Carolina.
It all starts at 11:59 a.m. ET, though, with Corso’s second headgear pick of the year. With Clemson’s placement in the college football landscape, it might be difficult for him to side with the home team.
