Lee Corso has picked the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to win over the Temple Owls tonight at Lincoln Financial Field in his weekly headgear selection. Corso donned a green hat when he made his pick.

Corso and Desmond Howard picked the Irish to win the biggest game in Owls history. But hometown mascot, the Phillie Phanatic, was the only one to pick the Philadelphia team.

Instead of making a gesture, like he did with his other picks when he made the Heisman pose for Michigan, Phanatic waved on the Owls mascot.

Corso was leaning towards picking the Owls early on. However, he said, “Once I heard the Pope was in this exact spot, I had to go with the Irish.”

He was referring to Pope Francis‘ visit to Philadelphia during the World Meeting of Families on Sept. 26-27.

After Corso picked the Irish, the fans booed behind him. Then, the Phanatic and the Owls mascots, along with Corso, host Reece Davis, and Kirk Herbstreit threw bones by the camera.
