Happy 87th birthday today to the one and only Lee Corso. Coach has been part of ESPN’s college football coverage for 35 years. Can’t wait for his first @CollegeGameDay headgear pick of the season in just a few weeks. pic.twitter.com/jiSEA7JIYx

Happy 87th birthday to the iconic Lee Corso. I’m pretty sure no other high school leads off game day with Coach Corso in their jersey. Go Noles! @SSNolesFootball @SanSemAthletics pic.twitter.com/PEepo9eY6s

Happy 87th birthday to a champion human being, Lee Corso! When he & Beano Cook met for the first time in 1987, LC famously said, “there are three things I will not talk about under any circumstances: politics, religion and pass defense!” 😆 #CFB #CollegeFootball #SunshineScooter pic.twitter.com/24VwPkWsHB

Happy 87th birthday to the true GOAT, Lee Corso.
This is one of my all-time favorite headgear picks. When he and the Oregon Duck wanted to fight Will Ferrell as Will Ferrell was attacking them with a giant head of Corso.@cbfowler @KirkHerbstreit pic.twitter.com/qaJklnd6SZ
