The Lee Corso headgear selection has stood the test of time, even as the man under the costume has aged over the years. On Saturday, with College Gameday once again in State College for tonight's Penn State-Ohio State matchup, the veteran of the ESPN broadcast had to pick between the Lions and the Buckeyes once again. 

The first time Corso donned the headgear 22 years ago, he put Brutus over his head, cementing his first love. However, that did not stop the 83-year-old from picking the Nittany Lions, until he had second thoughts. After taking some extra time to really ponder his decision, Corso finally decided...

  ....and Happy Valley went crazy. 

In addition to Corso, noted Lion pessimist Desmond Howard and alumnus/James Franklin impersonator Keegan-Michael Key are also going with the Nittany Lions tonight. 

Love live Corso.
