College GameDay came to us from Gainesville, Florida, this week for the Week 6 college football game between the No. 7 Auburn Tigers and No. 10 Florida Gators.

College GameDay Location Week 6

As always, the College GameDay crew made its picks and predictions for the biggest college football games of the weekend. This week’s celebrity guest picker, Emmitt Smith, is a Florida native and big-time Gators' fan.

Typically, the highlight of the show is when host Lee Corso makes his pick by donning the head of the team's mascot he is picking. He went with Albert and the Gators, who are 2.5-point home underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The game is set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. EST from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
