Week 11: Augusta National Golf Club (Masters)
College GameDay was live at Augusta National Golf Club in Week 11 in honor of Masters Week. So, naturally, this week’s headgear pick wasn’t for a college football game, but for who would win the Masters. Corso took Brooks Koepka to take the Green Jacket.

Week 10: Clemson vs. Notre Dame
Corso pointed out that it’s been 43 years since Notre Dame beat Clemson. That didn’t lead him away from picking the Fighting Irish over the top-ranked Tigers in this top-4 matchup.

Week 5: Georgia vs. Auburn
Corso picked Georgia ahead of its 125th all-time meeting with SEC rival Auburn. Part of his rationale? Corso claimed that Auburn doesn’t allow him to wear the school’s mascot head. “I’ve got no other choice.”
“GO BEAUTIFUL DAWGS!”
