It seems that Lee Corso has jumped on the LSU bandwagon after predicting that the Tigers will win it all in 2015.
The ESPN College Gameday host and everyone’s favorite headgear enthusiast predicted LSU to defeat Ohio State in the college football playoffs and win the national championship.
Corso is not the first Gameday host to predict the Tigers to bounce back after an 8-5 campaign last season. Corso’s co-host, Kirk Herbstreit, predicted the Tigers to win the SEC crown and punch their ticket to the playoffs as well, in his annual “Herbie” predictions.
Unlike Corso, Herbstreit has LSU stumbling against Ohio State in the championship game.
There seems to be a trend in the depths of ESPN. Alabama and Auburn, the preseason darlings from the SEC West, are usually the ones that would have their names penciled into these spots.
A changing of the guard might be unfolding as more and more analysts believe LSU, and not Alabama or Auburn, will traverse the dangerous SEC West and make its way to the playoff.
