Lee Corso’s headgear picks on ESPN’s College GameDay are a staple of college football Saturdays.
Corso, a former coach, has been a featured analyst on College GameDay since the show began in 1987. However, the tradition of putting on the mascot headgear began in 1996.
Here are some of the best, most memorable Lee Corso moments:
His first-ever headgear pick
We have to throw it back to the first headgear pick. Corso picked Ohio State to beat Penn State in Columbus on Oct. 5, 1996. The crowd approved.
All the times he hung out with live animals
For Corso’s 300th headgear pick, he brought, and held, a real live horned frog.

Then there was the time he picked Navy to beat Army back in 2017, and fed a live goat.

Plus, his love for dogs.
The time he was Cowboy Corso
For his pick on the Nov. 28, 2015 episode of College GameDay Corso put on the Pistol Pete headgear and truly embraced his inner cowboy.
The time he wrestled actor Bill Murray
Back in 2013, Corso and actor Bill Murray battled it out while Corso picked the Seminoles to beat Clemson.

The time he got in a sword fight with Kirk Herbstreit
Back in November 2013, Corso picked the Trojans and suffered a bloody cut while doing it. Fun fact, he is 22-1 when choosing USC. The lone loss was when the Trojans fell to Washington on Nov. 12, 2016.
The time he dressed up as James Madison
Corso came out in full costume back in 2015 to proclaim that the Dukes would pick up a win over Richmond. He got that pick wrong, but we still give credit for the outfit.
The time he dressed in full Spartan gear, with huge hands
In November 2014, Corso picked Michigan State over Ohio State. His pick was ultimately wrong, but we will never forget his “this is Sparta!”
The time back in 1999 he really went for it with his Hokie pick
The time when he brought out a bratwurst in Wisconsin
The time he gave his best rattler impression
Back in 2008, Corso had some impressive sound effects to go with this headgear pick.
The time he rode off on a motorcycle as the Duck
The time Corso wore his own Corso headgear and then fought actor Will Ferrell
The time Corso was emotional while celebrating 20 years of headgear picks
