“We had one that arguably might have topped Luke Combs, but — I’ll let you read between the lines — I think she is unavailable to join us, which is unfortunate,” Davis said.

“I think we know who that is,” Finebaum said. “Maybe that will change,” Davis said. “I hope so. It’s going to be tough. Luke was great. He was fun.

 He interacted great with Pat (McAfee) and Coach (Lee Corso). It was a great day, so hopefully, we’ll try to match it on Saturday in Knoxville.”

The last time GameDay was on Rocky Top, the show had Phillip Fulmer and Steve Spurrier combine to serve as the celebrity guest picker.
