Speculation built over the course of the week as to who would be the guest-picker with Oregon ties. Ionescu was a top choice, and College Gameday agreed.
Ionescu will be on-set during the final segment of the show to make picks for the biggest games on the college calendar, including Ducks vs Bruins, in the ‘Chip Kelly Super Bowl’. She will be alongside Gameday hosts Rece Davis, Desmond Howard, Pat McAfee, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit.
Oregon Ducks head coach Dan Lanning is expected to make a Gameday appearance early in the show, as well.
The Ducks (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) are 6-point favorites against the Bruins (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12). Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. on FOX.
