With LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in town for the big game, speculation ran rampant James would appear as the celebrity guest picker during the five-hour ESPN College GameDay broadcast outside of the Horseshoe.
But when the time came, it was NFL Hall of Famer and Buckeye offensive line legend Orlando Pace who walked onto the set.
Pace and analyst Lee Corso agreed: Ohio State will beat Michigan on this day. Corso, of course, donned a Brutus Buckeye head to enforce his point.
Corso's least headgear pick was in Madison, Wisconsin, when he predicted Ohio State to beat Wisconsin.
The win made him 15-6 in such headgear picks involving Ohio State.
