ESPN College GameDay will be in Athens on Saturday. When ESPN last visited, the celebrity picker was Jeff Foxworthy. There has been lots of buzz about who could or should be for this time around.

We usually don’t see No. 1 verses No. 2 in the regular season. It’s only fifth time in this century that worked out this way. According to dawpost.com,  the Georgia-Tennessee game stands as one of the most-watched games in college football. From 2012 to 2021, the UGA-UT game is the 17th-most watched game in the sport. That’s behind UGA-Alabama (No. 1), UGA-Auburn (No. 10) and Georgia-Florida (No. 12). Coming into the year Georgia-Tennessee is the most-watched series the Vols play – slighting in front of Alabama-Tennessee.

What names with Georgia connections are popular for the celebrity picker right now? Fans, former players….even a coach. Check out the video then check out the list below. One thing is for sure, the HYPE is already here.

Who would you like to see for the College GameDay Athens celebrity picker? They’ve had Zach Brown, Bubba Watson, Willie Robertson, Kane Brown, Goldberg, Matt Ryan, Chipper Jones, and Evander Holyfield.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, these would be good choices.
