Notre Dame At Michigan: 'GameDay' Analyst Lee Corso Picks Michigan For Desmond Howard

You're all probably aware of this by now, but there's a little night game tonight between Michigan and Notre Dame in Ann Arbor. Rumor has it that this is the first night game in Michigan Stadium history.

With a big event like this it's no surprise that ESPN's "College GameDay" set up shop at Ingalls Mall on the U-M campus this week.

As is tradition with each broadcast of "GameDay," analyst Lee Corso made his famous 'mascot' selection by donning Michigan's winged helmet with the number of partner-in-crime Desmond Howard on it. He also struck the 'Heisman pose' that Howard infamously sported after a punt return touchdown against Ohio State in 1991. Howard will be honored during the game by the school.

Howard's two children were also present (with former Ohio State quarterback Kirk Herbstreit holding one of them) to make Howard's pick for Michigan. Herbstreit got a smattering of boos from the crowd, despite the fact that he's usually unbiased with his analysis towards "that team up north."

Howard then asked his other son, who he was holding, who was going to win, getting an adorable "Michigan" in response. Corso then took the stage and did his act, to the delight of the crowd. Watch the full scene here.
