Picking against Kentucky is a College GameDay tradition unlike any other.
Kirk Herbstriet is the only picker who believes the 12th-ranked Wildcats will beat the Missouri Tigers on the road. The rest of the ESPN trio is rolling with the team who has yet to win an SEC game.
However, Desmond Howard does believe the game will be close (I think). In GameDay’s “Superdogs” segment, each person picks an underdog against the spread. Obviously, Herbstreit rolled with the Cats. Howard appeared to like the Cats to cover too, even though he disputed the ESPN graphic’s accuracy.
It wasn’t all bad press for Kentucky on College GameDay. A Benny Snell for Heisman sign appeared in Jacksonville.
The SEC Nation crew does not agree with GameDay. All three pickers think the Cats will win on the road.
