ESPN’s College GameDay was recently graced by some of golf’s most notable names.

Last week, former Longhorn Jordan Spieth joined the team and earlier this year Scottie Scheffler was surprised with the Jack Nicklaus award ahead of Texas-Alabama. Additionally, last year Harris English brought the Ryder Cup to his alma mater, Georgia.

This week, GameDay traveled to Big Sky Country for the state of Montana-Montana, with Sir Nick Faldo joining the team as the show’s guest selector.

And the six-time major champion came with a mouthful of daring takes.

Without gloves with a temperature hovering around five degrees in Bozeman – making it

in the program’s 35-year history — Faldo, 65, chose Montana State over Montana, Boise State over Wyoming and Michigan over Illinois.

The Englishman also took Utah over Oregon, citing Utah native Tony Finau’s recent success on the circuit.

He chose USC over UCLA because his last professional victory came at the Nissan Open at Riviera in 1997.

Faldo recalled how Jordan Spieth “screwed up last week” predicting Texas would upset TCU. So this week, Faldo won the Longhorns for a rebound win over the Kansas Jayhawks.

For Bedlam, Faldo took the Sooners over the Cowboys, saying Rickie Fowler needed to ditch his famous orange outfits, which Fowler wears on Sundays to pay homage to his alma mater.

When it was time to choose Stanford-Cal, Faldo took on Stanford, while also tying a brave golf prediction

Faldo said Tiger Woods and his son Charlie will win the PNC Championship in December, even though Team Woods has yet to join the field.

The Englishman wasn’t necessarily leaving on a whim as Team Woods finished second last year.

However, when it comes to Faldo’s Saturday picks on the grill, he might hope that sitting with CBS Sports’ NFL lead voice Jim Nantz on the CBS golf broadcast for the past 16 years (Faldo retired from the CBS booth earlier this year) rubbed off on him.
