ESPN’s College GameDay crew picks Texas versus K-State

Posted October 22nd, 2016


ESPN’s College GameDay crew is siding with Texas to get its first win over Kansas State in Manhattan, Kansas, since 2002.

Three out of four analysts — including celebrity guest picker Verne Lundquist — picked the Longhorns. Here’s the breakdown:

Desmond Howard: Texas


Verne Lundquist: Texas: “The Longhorns need a win and I think they get it.”

Lee Corso: Kansas State: “Not so fast, gotta go with the AARP guy.”

Kirk Herbstreit: Texas: “Shane Buechele makes the plays and they get it done.”

Earlier in the show, Lundquist name-dropped Southwestern University in Georgetown. The Pirates play Lundquist’s alma mater, Texas Lutheran, on Saturday.
