College GameDay Announces Official Celebrity Guest Picker For Knoxville Show

Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit on ESPN's College GameDay

ESPN's College GameDay has officially announced who this week's guest picker will be, and it's a good one. 

Tennessee legend Peyton Manning will join Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and the rest of the College GameDay crew for the show in Knoxville this Saturday. 

Manning will no doubt be rocking Tennessee orange to get the crowd fired up ahead of a massive SEC battle vs. Alabama. 

"Peyton Manning will be joining us in Knoxville Saturday as the guest picker," College GameDay announced.

Somehow this is the first time Peyton Manning is a guest picker on the show. It's long overdue and comes at just the right time. 

No. 6 Tennessee hosts No. 3 Alabama this Saturday afternoon in Knoxville. For the first time in a long time the Crimson Tide appear beatable. 

Perhaps Manning's presence can help the Volunteers get past their toughest conference foe on Saturday.
