Lee Corso and the rest of ESPN's College GameDay crew rolled into the City of Brotherly Love this week to preview Saturday's slate of NCAA football games. Just steps from the Liberty Bell, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and Co. broke down the day's matchups, including the featured bout -- an undefeated No. 21 Temple Owls squad hosting No. 9 Notre Dame at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday night.
In keeping with GameDay tradition, the guys invited a celebrity guest picker to join them on set and predict the outcome of the afternoon's games. That celebrity was none other than the Phillie Phanatic:

The Phanatic mimed most of his picks, kissed Corso on the lips and brought Temple's Hooter the Owl up on stage to hassle Corso when he predicted that the Fighting Irish would win Saturday's marquee matchup.

For those of you keeping score at home, the Phanatic picked No. 19 Ole Miss over Auburn, Georgia over No. 11 Florida, Texas Tech over No. 12 Oklahoma State, No. 15 Michigan over Minnesota, No. 8 Stanford over Washington State and No. 21 Temple over No. 9 Notre Dame.
