Olympic athlete Lori “Lolo” Jones will join the College GameDay Built by The Home Depot (@CollegeGameDay) cast for the guest picker segment when the show originates from Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday, Nov. 3 – site of Saturday’s SEC showdown between No. 1 Alabama (8-0, 5-0) and No. 5 LSU (7-1, 3-1). Host Chris Fowler and analysts Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit will welcome Jones on set (northeast corner of the Parade Field) for the final portion of the show to help predict the winners of the day’s top games.

A track and field star at LSU, Jones was an 11-time All-American and three-time NCAA Championship where she specialized in hurdles. She competed with U.S. track and field in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics and most recently, Jones was named to the U.S. national bobsled team, giving her the chance to earn a spot on the bobsled World Cup circuit.

College GameDay airs live at 9 a.m. ET on ESPNU and 10 a.m. on ESPN.

As part of the College Sports PR team at ESPN, it has been an exciting adventure for me since I joined the worldwide leader in July 2010, working on college football, college basketball, college lacrosse and WNBA properties. I began my love of sports as the manager of several high school sports teams and continued that hobby into college. While at Quinnipiac, I worked in the Sports Information Department, which led me to a summer internship at the New Haven Ravens, a AA baseball team, and an eventual job with the Athletic Communications Department at the University of Connecticut. After my five-year stint at Connecticut, I spent six years as Director of Communications at the BIG EAST Conference in Providence, R.I. before joining ESPN.
