Will Taylor Swift Be ESPN GameDay Picker For Notre Dame vs Ohio?
ESPN's "College GameDay" is coming to South Bend for the Notre Dame vs. Ohio game and there's a chance Taylor Swift will be the celebrity picker.
Did You Know Taylor Swift Has a Connection to Notre Dame?
Taylor Swift did not attend Notre Dame University but has a connection to the Fighting Irish.
Swift's brother Austin attended Notre Dame in 2010-2011 but transferred to Vanderbilt University. During his junior year of college, he moved back to Notre Dame, where he studied film and graduated on May 17, 2015.
ESPN's GameDay Returns To Notre Dame Stadium
ESPN's College GameDay is college football's premier pre-game show. It features hot Rece Davis, analysts Desmond Howard, Pat McAfee, Kirk Herbstreit, and former Indiana coach Lee Corso.
College football fans show up early and in droves to be a part of the GameDay festivities. Fans are often seen in the background of the show's hosts holding signs, or big head photos of coaches and players.
ESPN's College GameDay will be in South Bend, Indiana, for this week's Notre Dame vs. Ohio State game and will more than likely draw a great big crowd. One of the features of College GameDay is the celebrity guest game picker. This person is usually associated with the home team and helps the hosts pick the winners of the biggest college games from that day.
Could Taylor Swift Be The Guest Picker of College GameDay at Notre Dame?
Taylor Swift's brother Austin is an alumnus of Notre Dame which would lead fans to speculate that she could very well be the celebrity picker.
A local newspaper in South Bend asked fans to vote on who the celebrity picker should be for College GameDay and they came up with a list of 21 candidates. Swift, former head coach Lou Holtz, football legend Joe Montanna, actor Adam Driver, country superstar Garth Brooks, actor Vince Vaughn, and more. You can see the complete list here.
From the Notre Dame fans who were responding to a Facebook post, they are leaning hard toward former Fighting Irish coach Lou Holtz but never underestimate Swifties if they get a hold of the post.
We will all just have to wait and see this weekend who the celebrity picker for ESPN's College GameDay will actually be.
