College football ’13 TV lineup for L.A. in Week 12: The Corso Curse — Can he get into any trouble if dons a Trojan helmet and swings his sword?

corsoalESPN’s “College GameDay” will mark its 10th trip to USC — remember way back when, as they were wrestling with the fact there’d be no sunlight when the show started, but somehow, that sunrise and all the spotlights made the area outside the Coliseum all the more dramatic?
Because ESPN decided to make the Stanford-USC game a 5 p.m. Saturday prime-time event for its ABC audience, it made useful sense to hold “GameDay” in L.A. as well. This ends up being the fourth “GameDay” appearance in four years. USC’s only real “GameDay” exposure this season was when recently fired head coach Lane Kiffin made an appearance on the set in Seattle.
FF_155970_lAs for Lee Corso: ESPN says he is a perfect 9-0 when making predictions prior to a USC game in L.A. He’s picked USC the first six times, and whomever USC is playing the last three.
