Ohio State will win The Game. That's what Lee Corso thinks, at least.

Ahead of the Buckeyes battle with the Wolverines, the ESPN College GameDay co-host donned the Brutus headgear for the 37th time since the college football pregame started in 1996.

Ohio State is favored to beat Michigan in The Game by more than a touchdown on Saturday. The Buckeyes will welcome their rivals to Columbus and into the Horseshoe for the first time since 2018 when they beat the Wolverines in blowout fashion, 62-39. The programs will both be undefeated for the first time since the 2006 season when Ohio State defeated Michigan, 42-39, in "The Game of the Century."

How have the Buckeyes done when Corso picks Ohio State?

  • He’s picked the Buckeyes in 17 visits and is 14-7 in headgear picks. Of the previous visits to The Game, Corso has a split selection of 4-4 between Ohio State and Michigan and is 5-3 with those picks.
  • Corso has correctly picked all eight games this season, and, dating back to last season, the team represented by the headgear he picks has won 12 consecutive times.
  • Before today, Corso donned the Brutus headgear 36 times – the most of any team. Ohio State is 25-11 with those picks. His very first headgear pick in 1996 was also Brutus in Columbus.
