ESPN College GameDay is in Atlanta, Georgia for the opening weekend of the 2021 college football season, officially known as Week 0. The first show of the season took place outside of Center Parc Stadium prior to a meeting of two HBCUs.
The featured game for Week 0 was the MEAC-SWAC Challenge game between North Carolina Central and Alcorn State.
Among the special guests throughout the show were Atlanta-based rap trio Migos, and Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders. The special guest picker, meanwhile, was new Tennessee State head coach Eddie Georgia, who starred at Ohio State and won a Heisman Trophy during his collegiate career.
Alcorn State vs. North Carolina Central is set for a 7:00 p.m. ET kickoff live on ESPN.
Ahead of the MEAC-SWAC Challenge, the College GameDay crew of Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard, and David Pollack went through their weekly picks before it came down to Lee Corso and his headgear pick.
When it came time to unveil his choice for the MEAC-SWAC Challenge, who did he roll with?
