Derrick Henry might have been video bombed while making his Alabama-Georgia pick Saturday during ESPN’s “College GameDay,” the but the Tennessee Titans running back overcame it like a would-be tackler.
The former Alabama running back was the guest picker and didn’t disappoint.
“Of course, we know the passing ability,” Henry explained about Alabama’s offense. “We can go over the top on anybody. I think Najee Harris’ receiving skills will come in heavy emphasis today. I’m going with Bama all the day. Roll Tide, baby.”
Perhaps even more entertaining was Lee Corso, who continues to do the show from remote.
“For years, I wanted to be on a big elephant when I picked Alabama,” he said. “They never let me do it. Today, I get my wish. Roll Tide.”
In fact, Henry, Corso, Desmond Howard and David Pollack all picked Alabama. Kirk Herbstreit was the lone pick for Georgia.
All five picked South Carolina over Auburn.
Here are how they picked the other games:
Henry, Pollack and Corso picked No. 11 Texas A&M to win at Mississippi State, while Howard and Herbstreit picked the Bulldogs.
All five picked Ole Miss over Arkansas and Tennessee over Kentucky.
