Former Ohio State Buckeyes running back Eddie George was this week’s College GameDay guest picker. George, who also starred in the NFL, returned to his alma mater to make the picks in the final segment of the show.

George is the second guest picker of the season. Sam Hunt, an American singer, went 8-1 in his picks last week.

In the first game of his selections, he picked former Big Ten Conference rival, the Penn State Nittany Lions, the No. 4 ranked team in the country, to defeat their Pennsylvania rival, the Pitt Panthers. He also picked the Iowa Hawkeyes to defeat its long-time rival, the Iowa State Cyclones, in his second selection.

George went with No. 23 TCU Horned Frogs to defeat the Arkansas Razorbacks in his third selection. He also picked the Nebraska Cornhuskers to defeat the Oregon Ducks with his fourth pick.

He also picked the Utah Utes to beat the BYU Cougars, as he said they would struggle again following the beat-down to the LSU Tigers in the Hurricane Harvey moved game. George also went with No. 20 Washington State Cougars defeating the Boise State Broncos.

The long-time NFL back also picked the No. 24 Notre Dame Fighting Irish to defeat the No. 15 Georgia Bulldogs, as he said the Bulldogs freshman signal-caller will be nervous playing at the famed Notre Dame Stadium. He also picked No. 3 Clemson Tigers to defeat No. 13 Auburn Tigers.

George also picked No. 14 Stanford Cardinal to defeat No. 6 USC Trojans despite the game being played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Also, finally, in the biggest game of the weekend, George picked his No. 2 Buckeyes to defeat No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners at Ohio Stadium.
