It’s Saturday morning during the autumn season, which means college football is in the air. Equally as important — College GameDay is here, and the absolute perfect celebrity picker showed up in Oregon to make some picks.
WNBA superstar Sabrina Ionescu took the College GameDay set in Eugene by storm and stole the show as she did so many times on that campus during her time as a Duck. Her first dagger? She’s got the Syracuse Orange upsetting the Clemson Tigers in Death Valley.
“I play in New York, I got to represent New York and I’m going with the BIG upset — SYRACUSE!” Ionescu said with enthusiasm as the only one to take the Orange.
Syracuse did upset No. 2 ranked Clemson back in 2013, and the Orange were on track to do the same Saturday, going up 21-10 at the half. But they didn’t score any points after the break as the Tigers’ fourth quarter rally gave them the 27-21 victory.
Ionescu wasn’t done.
In Eugene, on campus and repping some sweet Oregon gear, who do you think she could have possibly been picking in Saturday’s big showdown between No. 9 UCLA and No. 10 Oregon?
Well, the Oregon pick was obvious, but she jazzed it up by leading the pro-Duck crowd in chanting out the lyrics of “Shout” in unison before taking the Ducks “BY A MILLION.”
As always, an A+ showing from Sabrina on the big stage.
