College GameDay is at the Texas State Fair for the Red River Showdown between Texas and Oklahoma. Who did Lee Corso pick to win the Big 12 rivalry game?
Typically, Rivalry Week is set for the last week of the regular season when Alabama and Auburn, Michigan and Ohio State and USC and UCLA, among others, renew their conference or in-state rivalries.

There is the game between Miami and Florida State with both teams looking to put their in-state and ACC rivals down. Then, there’s the latest in the SEC crossover rivalry between LSU and Florida. While neither is the other team’s primary rival, the game means a lot to both sides and should be a game that reveals a lot about both teams.

College GameDay is set up at the Texas State Fair for the latest in what the Longhorns are hoping will be the first legit step toward them returning to Big 12 prominence. Meanwhile, the Sooners are hoping to avoid the upset as Kyler Murray presses forward with his Heisman campaign and his team makes a big statement for the playoff committee.
And with GameDay in attendance, that means Lee Corso will be making his signature headgear pick for the game at the end of the show, or around 11:55 a.m. ET.
Will Corso pick the Longhorns or will he be saying “Boomer Sooner” when he makes his pick?
While it’s usually a mystery up to the moment as to what Corso will pick, we were tipped off pretty early as to which way he might be leaning.
And it turns out that’s where he ended up leaning:
