College GameDay Open Thread

Let’s talk about the first Miami-hosted GameDay since we beat the brakes off of Notre Dame in 2017.

They’re comiiiiiiiiiin’ our city!!!!

Welcome to College GameDay!!!

For the second consecutive week, the Miami Hurricanes are a featured team on ESPN’s iconic pregame show. This comes on the heels of being the road team in last week’s show on the road at Louisville, a show that preceded Miami’s 47-34 win over the Cardinals.

Here are a couple quick notes:

  • Kirk Herbstreit came in contact with COVID-19 this week, but has tested negative. Still, he’ll be doing GameDay and his color commentary for the game from his home in Nashville as a precaution.
  • Here’s what the GameDay set will look like this weekend:
  • This is the eighth time the show has been to a Miami vs. Florida State game (The record for most matchups visited by GameDay is 11 - Alabama vs. LSU)
  • It’s the first time the show has been at a game featuring a ranked Miami team and an unranked Florida State team
  • Miami has won four of the previous seven games vs. FSU with GameDay in town
  • This is GameDay’s eighth trip to Miami – the Canes are 6-1 in the previous seven instances
  • Corso has picked Miami eight times and is 6-2 with those eight picks — including last week at Louisville.
  • He is 5-7 all-time when picking against the Canes
  • He has picked against the Seminoles eight times - and he’s usually correct when he does
  • Corso is 6-2 when donning the headgear of FSU’s opponent, including being right five straight times
  • This will be headgear pick 352 for Lee Corso
  • He will look to start the year with three straight headgear wins for the second time in three years

Gonna be a long day, but let’s start it by talking about the show as GameDay is in town!
