(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)ESPN has announced some major news for top college football analyst Lee Corso.Corso, who’s College GameDay head-gear picks have become one of the best parts of the college football week, will be doing a new one later this year.The college football analyst will be doing a head-gear pick prior to an NFL game between the Rams and the Saints.From NOLA.com:Lee Corso will make his famous headgear pick on the Sunday NFL Countdown set for ESPN leading into the New Orleans Saints’ home game against the Los Angeles Rams. This will be the first time in the 33-year history of Countdown for Corso to be on set for an NFL pick, according to ESPN coordinating producer Matt Garrett.The set will be outside Manning’s Bar & Grill in New Orleans. Corso also will be in Baton Rouge on Saturday to make his headgear pick leading into the LSU home game against Alabama. The headgear pick is closely associated to ESPN’s college football coverage, particularly on ESPN’s traveling College GameDay set.This is a unique weekend of football coverage for the sports network with the Sunday NFL show going on the road for only the third time — this being the third year in a row it has taken the show on the road. The last time was for a Week 15 game last season in Pittsburgh between the Steelers and New England Patriots for a game that ultimately decided home-field advantage though the AFC playoffs.That will be pretty cool to see. The Saints do have one of the most “college football”-type atmospheres in the NFL.The Saints and the Rams are set to kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T. on Sunday.last_img read more
