It seems that Lee Corso has jumped on the LSU bandwagon after predicting that the Tigers will win it all.

The College Gameday host and everyone’s favorite head gear enthusiast predicted LSU to defeat Ohio State in the College Football Playoffs and win the National Championship.

Corso is not the first ESPN host to predict the Tigers to bounce back after an 8-5 campaign last season. Corso’s co-host, Kirk Herbstreit predicted the Tigers to win the SEC crown and punch their ticket to the playoffs as well, in his annual “Herbie” predictions.

While Corso believes that LSU will win it all, Herbstreit believes that the Tigers will stumble against the Buckeyes in the championship game.

There seems to be a trend in the depths of ESPN. Alabama and Auburn, the preseason darlings from the SEC West are usually the ones that would have their names penciled into these spots.

A changing of the guard might be unfolding as more and more analyst believe that LSU and not Alabama or Auburn will traverse the dangerous SEC West and make their way to the playoff.
