Spartans prove to be the kings of 'College GameDay'

Ohio State's Joshua Perry (77) reaches for Michigan State quarterback Damion Terry as he runs through a gap in the line in the second quarter.

Three games, three wins.

Michigan State is proving to be the king of ESPN's "College GameDay."

"College GameDay," ESPN's popular Saturday show, has broadcast 11 times this season, three of those on site of Michigan State games -- and Michigan State won them all.

* The first one was Sept. 12 in East Lansing, where MSU beat No. 7 Oregon, 31-28.

* The second one was Oct. 17 in Ann Arbor, where MSU beat No. 12 Michigan, 27-23.

* And the third one was Saturday in Columbus, where MSU beat No. 2 Ohio State, 17-14.

Making the victories even sweeter for the Spartans, other than the fact they've now put themselves in prime position to make the College Football Playoff -- Lee Corso, ESPN's wacky analyst who makes his predictions each week by putting on the mascot head of his pick, picked against Michigan State in all three of those games.
