ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit picked UCLA to beat LSU on Saturday morning's "College GameDay."

So when he finished broadcasting the Georgia vs. Clemson game on Saturday night, he chimed in with a boisterous tweet about LSU losing to UCLA in the fourth quarter. 

Herbstreit said, "Hmmm…. Just finished calling the UGA/Clemson game…anyone happen to have a score from Pasadena??? #GetInFront." 

About the time of Herbstreit's tweet, UCLA took a 38-20 lead on a touchdown by Kyle Philips. UCLA beat LSU 38-27.

Herbstreit subsequently tweeted a winking emoji in response to a tweet from ESPN's Chris "The Bear" Fallica that said, "How’s @UCLAFootball doin tonight @KirkHerbstreit?" Fallica also picked UCLA to beat LSU on "College GameDay." 

LSU, ranked No. 13 in the USA Today Sports AFCA Coaches Poll, started the season 0-1 overall. UCLA improved to 2-0 overall.

This was the first matchup between these two football programs.
