Lee Corso has worked with ESPN's "College GameDay" since it started in 1987, but it's his pick segment at the end of the show for which he's best known.

On Saturday, Corso made his 300th headgear selection, choosing TCU to beat West Virginia in Fort Worth, Texas.

The analyst began the tradition Oct. 5, 1996, when he slipped into the Ohio State mascot head - Brutus the Buckeye - selecting Ohio State to upend Penn State.

"I'll never forget sitting there, and I'm looking over at him, and it's the craziest thing," Kirk Herbstreit told ESPN about the first time in Columbus, Ohio. "To see Brutus ... his head ... on Lee Corso with a tie on, and a suit. And it just clicked."

Corso's first pick proved to be correct, as the Buckeyes crushed the Nitanny Lions 38-7 at Ohio Stadium.

The Horned Frogs host the Mountaineers at 3:30 p.m. ET.
