See Lee Corso’s headgear pick for Michigan vs. Minnesota

ESPN’s College GameDay spent a brisk — like, temperatures in the mid-20s kind of brisk — Saturday morning in Minneapolis ahead of No. 21 Minnesota’s home game against No. 18 Michigan.

Although it’s technically Week 8 of the college football season, it’s the Big Ten’s season-opening weekend, and, with only eight regular-season games in eight weeks, this matchup is a big one.

During the Golden Gophers’ impressive 11-2 2019 season, GameDay visited Minnesota for the first time, and now it’s back for a second appearance in 13 shows.

But while the GameDay crew was dealing with some chilly weather, Lee Corso continued broadcasting from his “home” studio in Orlando. And he has faith in Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines, who are slight 3-point favorites over Minnesota, and put on a giant Michigan helmet.

And perhaps that’s fair because Corso said Minnesota hasn’t beaten Michigan at home in 43 years, and Michigan as won 20 of the last 21 played in Minnesota. However, as ESPN noted, Harbaugh’s team has been on the road for its last seven GameDay features, and the Wolverines have lost every time.

Vince Vaughn was the guest picker, and he went with the Golden Gophers.

Corso also picked No. 25 Coastal Carolina over Georgia Southern, No. 14 North Carolina over No. 23 NC State, Auburn over Ole Miss, LSU over South Carolina, No. 2 Alabama over Tennessee, No. 3 Notre Dame over Pitt, Texas over Baylor, Oklahoma over TCU, No. 17 Iowa State over No. 6 Oklahoma State and No. 16 SMU over No. 9 Cincinnati — and the Mustangs’ mascot jumped in Corso’s pool after that pick.

And for the rest of the Big Ten’s opening weekend, he went with Indiana over No. 8 Penn State and No. 5 Ohio State over Nebraska. Led by redshirt freshman quarterback Graham Mertz and No. 14 Wisconsin beat Illinois on Friday night.
