Gabrielle Union, Dwayne Wade, Lee Corso makes picks for Ohio State, Nebraska on ESPN ‘College GameDay’

Also check out what the pickers had to say about all of the biggest games of the day.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Auburn Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

As the first games of the day approached, the panel on ESPN’s “College GameDay wrapped up the show as they always do, by picking the winners of the biggest games of the day. Actress, Omaha, Neb. native, and Husker superfan Gabrielle Union and her husband Dwyane Wade were the guest pickers, and along with Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, and Desmond Howard, she picked the biggest games of the day, finishing off with the No. 5 Ohio State Buckeyes and Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Herbie didn’t pick the Buckeyes’ game, because he is calling the contest on ABC tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET.

What headgear did Coach Corso wear?

Union and Wade’s good friend LeBron James chimed in on their picks as well:

With today’s “GameDay” visit, the pregame show has been on site of an Ohio State game 45 times, one behind Alabama’s record. The Buckeyes also have the most wins in “GameDay” contests, going 31-13 in the previous 44 games.

The 40 times that Corso has donned headgear for an OSU game, he has gone 24-17. The last time that “GameDay” was on site for a Buckeye game, Corso donned an oversized winged helmet instead of his trusty Brutus head. That headgear pick was before the Buckeyes’ 62-39 demolition of the Wolverines. The Sunshine Scooter picked against OSU twice last season (also against Penn State) and lost both times.
