'Helicopter man': College GameDay's picks segment featured Kirk Herbstreit making picks from the air
This might be a first for college GameDay.
Kirk Herbstreit made his picks on GameDay remotely this week as he traveled via helicopter for his next game.
Here’s a clip, which features Lee Corso referring to Herbstreit as “Helicopter man.”

Herbstreit is en route to call the 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff between Miami and North Carolina. This week, GameDay is staged at the Army-Navy game at West Point.
It’s notable Herbstreit picked Missouri to upset Georgia. That would certainly shake up the College Football Playoff rankings and make room for Indiana in the top 10 heading into next weekend.
Next week’s College GameDay location will be Charlotte for the ACC Championship Game. That’s an ABC game, so hopefully Kirk’s helicopter days are over for this season at least.
Today’s Army-Navy game is scheduled for a 3 p.m. ET kickoff on CBS.
