Blake Griffin set to be GameDay picker

The Red River Rivalry will host ESPN's College GameDay on Saturday morning with No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 11 Texas kicking off in the Cotton Bowl right after the show's conclusion at noon ET.

Oklahoma hoops legend Blake Griffin will join the desk as the celebrity guest picker for Saturday's games.

He's shown an ability to be an entertainer off the field, so it's a great selection, and an easily recognizable name.

But hey, at a neutral-site game, we can't balance it out? I'd love to see Kevin Durant and Griffin go head-to-head in some kind of carnival hoops game at the fair.

Either way, it should be a fun Saturday.
