Rece Davis recounts craziest Lee Corso ‘College GameDay’ story
Rece Davis has been behind the “College GameDay” desk since 2015, taking over for Chris Fowler after the latter was elevated to ESPN’s lead college football play-by-play announcer.
In that time, he’s had a number of memorable moments with the long-running show and its cast, including Desmond Howard, Kirk Herbstreit, David Pollack, and Lee Corso.
During a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session on Sunday following the announcement of the College Football Playoff field, Davis was asked about his craziest Lee Corso story.
”Penn State,” Davis replied. “I ask him to crowd surf with the Lion. We all get nervous the students aren’t going to put him down so he can get back to the set in time. 60 seconds before show, we decide to pull the plug on it. I tell him in his headset, ‘Come on back LC, security is worried you won’t get back to set after Comin to Your City is over.’ LC says, ‘Hell no, sweetheart. We’re doing it!’ Amazing scene set and way to start the show!”
The moment Davis was referring to was in 2017, which you can view below:
What a treasure Lee Corso is.
