College Gameday stopped at East Lansing this morning in anticipation of the big matchup between Oregon and Michigan State. We have all the top highlights, best signs and video of Lee Corso’s headgear selection.
Here is a recap of Week 2 of College Gameday:
Lee Corso Trolls Michigan State Fans With Headgear Selection
Lee Corso has made his pick between Oregon and Michigan State in the marquee matchup of the college football week. Corso gave the ultimate pump fake as he played to the home crowd. He claimed to be done with the Ducks and turned to grab Sparty’s headgear. As he did, the Oregon mascot showed up and handed him the Duck mascot head.
Gameday cutaway to a shot of the man who normally brings out the headgear for Corso. He was tied up with a Spartans helmet. According to ESPN, it marks the 11th time the show has visited Michigan State. Unfortunately for Spartans fans, Michigan State has a losing record of 4-6 when the show comes to town. In the history of Gameday, Lee Corso has only picked Michigan State three times and has been 5-1 when picking against the Spartans. Spartans fans hope it will be 5-2 after tonight.
Draymond Green Is the Celebrity Guest Picker
The rumors were true. NBA star Draymond Green is the celebrity guest picker on Gameday. Green is a Michigan State alumni and has been tweeting photos of himself at East Lansing the last few days.
Vernon Adams Has Featured Interview
Gene Wojciechowski interviewed Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams on the transition from Eastern Washington to Eugene. Gameday detailed the math class Adams had to re-take in order to be eligible to play for Oregon.
Adams initally said he would not transfer again if he had it to do over again. Wojciechowski interviewed him after the first Oregon game, and he changed his mind. He noted that it was worth all the transition and hardships to be able to lead the Ducks on the field.
Gameday Segment Explored Relationship Between Bob Stoops & Japanese Coach
Tom Rinaldi did an excellent piece detailing Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops’ relationship with Japanese coach Isao Hashizume. Hashizume came to Norman, Oklahoma to learn about coaching from Stoops. Hashizume is the head coach of Ritsumeikan Panthers, a college football team in Japan.
