GameDay names Pat McAfee as celebrity picker


BROOKINGS, S.D. (KELO) — The final piece of ESPN’s College GameDay broadcast on the campus of South Dakota State University in Brookings has been finalized.

The show named Pat McAfee as the celebrity guest picker.

Pat McAfee, a football and professional wrestling analyst and retired football punter for the Indianapolis Colts, will be in Brookings on Saturday.

McAfee played with Adam Vinatieri from 2009 to 2016. Vinatieri is an SDSU alumn.

In a Tweet between Pat McAfee and Rece Davis, McAfee shared that he will be a part of the College GameDay show.

In the show’s other Midwest stops, country musician Eric Church was the guest picker in Ames, Iowa, while Gabrielle Union picked in Lincoln, Nebraska.
