Lee Corso picks James Madison, scares a dog on set of College GameDay

ESPN's College Gameday was in Harrisonburg, Va. on Saturday morning  to visit the reigning FCS National Champion and unbeaten James Madison Dukes (5-0) as they faced off against the Villanova Wildcats (4-2).

The special trip to JMU meant a special edition of the Gameday picks, featuring Lee Corso and his mascot headgear selection.

Not only did Corso have headgear to put on, but the set also had a special guest. 

That poor bulldog was terrified of Corso and wanted to do anything but sit on that desk with him in that mascot head.

It was a very good dog and just got scared. Totally understandable. 12/10 would save from falling off the desk.

Virginia Tech bounces back with 300 yard game by Josh Jackson

BOSTON -- Josh Jackson threw for 322 yards and a touchdown and No. 16 Virginia Tech bounced back from a loss to defending national champion Clemson to beat Boston College 23-10 on Saturday night.

Sean Savoy had nine catches for 139 yards and a score after No. 1 receiver Cam Phillips went out with an apparent leg injury in the first quarter. Savoy went 53 yards on a slant pattern to open the scoring midway through the first quarter, and the Hokies (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) never trailed.

Travon McMillian ran 17 times for 88 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown that gave Virginia Tech a 17-3 lead midway through the second quarter. With 11 points -- three field goals and two extra points -- Joey Slye became the school's career scoring leader.

Anthony Brown completed 13 of 30 passes for 166 yards for BC (2-4, 0-2). He also caught a touchdown pass on a halfback option from former quarterback Jeff Smith to make it 23-10 with 5:38 left in the game.
