For the first time in the history of ESPN's College GameDay, Lee, Kirk, and Corso will be in Nashville for a Vanderbilt game. GameDay. Vanderbilt.
I'll give you a moment to absorb that.
The most bizarre thing about this call is that there really isn't much else out there this weekend. Oregon State at Utah is on Thursday night, the #1 Sooners have Baylor, and Texas is at Colorado (the Buffs just suffered a loss to Florida State).
Kentucky at Alabama could be a better game, but the Tide have already been feature teams on GameDay twice this season. #9 USC has a ranked Oregon coming to L.A. and #14 Ohio State is visiting #18 Wisconsin, but USC and Wisconsin just lost to weak conference opponents.
This is really the most logical decision, which is absolutely mind-blowing. The Commodores are 4-0, lead the SEC East, and unless Tony Franklin can get Auburn's offense going, they have a very real chance of sending the Tigers back to the Plains with a loss.
The question that should be on the minds of Auburn faithful this week: will the 'Dores give away enough points for Auburn to escape with a win?
