Bubba Watson will be Georgia picker on ESPN’s College Gameday

Bubba Watson probably picks his Georgia Bulldogs to win most SEC football Saturdays, but this week, he'll be sharing his picks with a massive audience of fellow Dawgs and the millions watching ESPN's "College Gameday."

Watson will be the celebrity guest picker as ESPN's college football pre-game show descends on Athens, Ga., to spotlight the SEC matchup between Georgia and the LSU Tigers.

Watson played on the University of Georgia golf team for two years after transferring from Faulkner State Community College inĀ Florida community college in 2000.

It is probably not coincidence that Watson is on the program given he recently made a cameo in ESPN's new SportsCenter ad.

Bubba Golf has not been at its best in 2013, with the 2012 Masters champion going winless on the year and his only top-five finish coming at the Travelers Championship back in June.

ESPN's "College Gameday" airs at 9 a.m. ET.
