Gotta love Pat McAfee on ESPN’s College GameDay.
MONSTER matchup today with the #3 team in the country, the Georgia Bulldogs, taking on the #1 Tennessee Volunteers, and country music’s own Luke Bryan was on hand as College GameDay’s guest picker.
Luke is of course a Georgia native and big time Bulldog fan, meanwhile his CMA Awards co-host, Peyton Manning, is an alum of the University of Tennessee. You already know these two have a few Gs on the line right now…
Luke will also be on Peyton and Eli’s Monday Night Football ManningCast this week, but that’s a story for another time…
Anyways, back to college football…
Let’s just say… Luke was having a TIME this morning. Already losing his voice, already seeming a little buzzed, Luke made the joke that he has a show in Tampa tonight and he’s not giving out refunds.
And while everyone and their mother is focused on Tennessee Georgia game today, perhaps the funniest moment of the show was when they got around to Clemson and Notre Dame’s matchup and Luke brought up his buddy, and fellow country music singer, Lee Brice.
Lee, a South Carolina native and big Clemson guy, apparently never reached out to ol’ Luke this morning so Luke had to take the Fighting Irish, and the exchange was downright hilarious:
“I woke up this morning and I flipped because my buddy Lee Brice, country music singer, Clemson fan, he never called me, he never reached out…”
When Pat McAfee interrupted with fine-inducing:
“THAT SON OF A BITCH.”
Needless to say, the entire group erupted in laughter.
And when it came time for the big pick, Pat pulled the ol’ changeup on Luke with a little “Rain Is A Good Thing,” right into “Rocky Top,” ultimately taking the Tennessee Volunteers.
Here’s the full slate of picks:
