ESPN’s College GameDay was in South Bend, Indiana on Saturday ahead of No. 4 Notre Dame’s primetime home matchup against No. 1 Clemson (7:30 p.m. ET, NBC). Both teams enter the game undefeated and at the top of the ACC standings in the Fighting Irish’s first year in the conference.
And, like every week of the 2020 college football season, Lee Corso wasn’t with the GameDay crew. He joined the broadcast from his “home” studio in Orlando — compete with signs and mascots from around the country. But his headgear pick for the marquee matchup was hardly a surprise.
“It’s no secret I’m picking the Irish,” said Corso. “But it’s been 43 years since Notre Dame beat Clemson. 43 years! But it’s worth the wait. The Irish upset No. 1 Clemson and get their 23rd straight win at home.”
A reminder that Corso’s been perfect with his picks this season …

Former Notre Dame wire receiver, Chase Claypool, who’s now playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers, obviously picked his Fighting Irish to win too.
Corso also picked Virginia Tech over No. 25 Liberty, No. 6 Cincinnati over Houston, No. 23 Michigan over No. 13 Indiana, Northwestern over Nebraska, Oklahoma State over Kansas State, West Virginia over No. 22 Texas, Oregon over Stanford, No. 20 USC over Arizona State and No. 8 Florida over No. 5 Georgia.
