The guest picker for College GameDay at Iowa State is – wait for it – country singer Eric Church.

The North Carolina native doesn’t have many ties to the state of Iowa, and much less the city of Ames, but it is ESPN’s decision and they don’t always choose someone from the hometown.

GameDay has set up at Ames for the first time ever and the program will start at 8 a.m. on Saturday.

Seneca Wallace will be part of the show, and many speculated that he would earn the distinction of guest picker, but GameDay is going the celerity rout with this choice.
