On College GameDay, the set was at the Iron Bowl between the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide and the No. 15 ranked Auburn Tigers. At the end of the show, Lee Corso was joined by legend Joe Namath.

Cross made the audio person play “Sweet Home Alabama” then switched to another song. Finally, Corso would go on to put the Crimson Tide headgear on his head for this week’s selection.

Namath, an Alabama graduate, said he would choke Corso if he picked the wrong side. The former college coach is 9-5 all-time when he has picked Auburn, and correctly picked the Mississippi State Bulldogs to beat Auburn earlier this season.

But each of the past three years, he’s picked the Crimson Tide in Week 14. He’s 7-5 in his Week 14 picks.

Last year, Alabama lost to Auburn in dramatic fashion, which was the first Tigers win in the Iron Bowl since 2010. In 2012, the Crimson Ride defeated Georgia Bulldogs.

Chris Davis returned a 109-yard field goal for Auburn to defeat Alabama. The Crimson Tide were stunned after the loss, as the Tigers would go on to play in the National Championship game.

The win of this game has gone on to play in the National Championship game since 2009.
