Matthew McConaughey Picks BYU Over Tennessee On College Gameday
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – BYU vs. Tennessee was one of the featured games that the ESPN College Gameday crew made predictions for.
Gameday was located at Austin, Texas for tonight’s LSU vs. Texas matchup.
When at Texas, the celebrity guest picker for College Gameday has to be Matthew McConaughey. Indeed he was.
11 games were on the Saturday Selections slate for McConaughey and the Gameday hosts that features Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, and Desmond Howard.
Tonight’s BYU vs. Tennessee game was the second matchup the show was making predictions on and McConaughey was the only one on the set who picked the Cougars over the Volunteers.
Alright, alright, alright.

Howard, Corso, and Herbstreit all picked Tennessee to bounce back against BYU after their shocking loss to Georgia State a week ago. Howard said, “Don’t underestimate this BYU team,” but still picked the Vols.
