But before all that madness transpired, App State hosted the iconic ESPN pregame show College GameDay and none other than the Entertainer of the Year himself, Luke Combs was the celebrity guest picker.
Not only is Luke an absolute legend of Boone, North Carolina, but he’s a bigtime college football fan and brought the knowledge and energy that was needed to get that place rocking the entire time.
Of course I’m a little biased, but he was one of the greatest, if not the greatest, guest picker of all-time…
He was joined on the desk by the newest College GameDay team member, the one and only Pat McAfee, who is a big fan of Luke and obviously knows a thing or two about getting crowds worked into a frenzy.
So when it came time to make picks for who would win that night’s game between App State and Troy, as if the crowd needed a catalyst, Pat did what he does best and started an absolute raucous scene that laid the backdrop for Luke to give a goosebumps giving speech and choosing App State to win “BY A MILLION”.
