Lee Corso and the ESPN College GameDay crew broadcast from Austin this Saturday morning ahead of No. 1 Alabama at Texas (11 a.m. CT/noon ET, FOX). Saturday’s show will originate from the LBJ Lawn before wrapping up inside DKR Texas Memorial Stadium.

When it comes time to pick the games, will Corso go with the big favorite, Alabama, or the home underdog, Texas? ESPN PR shared some stats of interest regarding Corso’s headgear picks with the Crimson Tide and Longhorns:

  • Corso is 6-1 making headgear picks in Austin. The loss came in 2006 when he incorrectly picked the Longhorns to beat Ohio State.
  • This is just the fourth time “GameDay” has been to the site of a home underdog by at least 20 points. Alabama -20.5 is the current Vegas Insider consensus line.
  • The largest underdog winner for a Corso pick was Texas in 1999 when the Longhorns beat Nebraska as a 9-point underdog.
  • This is the 53rd time “College GameDay” has originated from the site of an Alabama game. The Crimson Tide is second only to Ohio State, the Saturday site for Week 1 of the 2022 season.
  • Corso is 21-10 when putting on Alabama headgear and 7-5 when donning Texas headgear. He is 3-3 when picking against Texas.

GameDay begins at 8 a.m. CT/9 a.m. ET.
