We are on the eve of a dramatic weekend of college football, and the guest picker for ESPN’s College GameDay was announced Friday evening.

For Week 11, GameDay is in SEC country. ESPN’s popular pregame show will broadcast live from Tuscaloosa, Alabama where the No. 3 Crimson Tide will host the No. 2 LSU Tigers.

The selection was a bit disappointing as ESPN passed on one of the biggest games in Minnesota history. The No. 17 Golden Gophers will play host to No. 4 Penn State in a critical B1G battle.

Regardless of where GameDay is, the weekend of action is shaping up to be one of the best of the year. Expect a jam-packed show Saturday with plenty of stories to cover.

The guest picker for the weekend will be PGA tour golfer Justin Thomas. He previously golfed at Alabama and won the 2017 PGA Championship.
