Bubba Watson made an appearance on ESPN's College GameDay on Saturday in Athens, Ga., where his alma mater, Georgia, is set to host LSU Saturday afternoon.

Watson, wearing a red Georgia T-shirt and backwards red Georgia hat, was joined by fellow guest picker, Willie Robertson of the A&E television show Duck Dynasty. During the segment, Watson showcased some knowledge of college football, joining hosts Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit in picking 10 games.

And as expected, Watson went with the Bulldogs.

Here are all of Watson's selections:

• • •

Sam Houston over Eastern Washington

"Sam Houston sounds better to me."

• • •

South Carolina over Central Florida

"UCF they've surprised us, (but) got to stick with the SEC."

• • •

Texas A&M over Arkansas

"I'm going with Johnny Manziel's team."

• • •

Alabama over Ole Miss

"You can kind of smell an upset there, but Kirby Smart, the defensive coordinator (at Alabama), went to Georgia, so I gotta go with Alabama."

• • •

Ohio State over Wisconsin

"I think this is another one that could be scary. . . . Urban Meyer, I got to meet him this year and since he left Florida, I really like him."

• • •

Iowa over Minnesota

"I just think they (Iowa) are going to go in there and play solid defense and come away with a victory."

• • •

Oklahoma over Notre Dame

"Ryan Hybl was my teammate at Georgia, played golf here, and now he's the golf coach at Oklahoma."

• • •

Arizona State over USC

"I have a house out there (in Arizona). This stadium is pretty cool right there on the side of the mountain."

• • •

Stanford over Washington State

"I really want to see an upset, but I think Stanford still pulls it out at the end."

• • •

Georgia over LSU

"Georgia is going to step up after last game and come out firing. . . . I think it's going to be high scoring, but hopefully Georgia can stop them a little bit."

• • •

Some good picks, and even better explanations on some of them. Now, let's see how many Bubba gets right.
