College football fans can rejoice as one of the faces of the sport will return to its biggest stage Saturday. 

Lee Corso, who has been a part of ESPN’s “College GameDay” since 1987, will make his first appearance in a month Saturday as the show travels to Bozeman, Montana, for an FCS matchup between the University of Montana and Montana State.

“Awesome news! Look who’s back?! Mr Corso reunites with the [College GameDay] gang tomorrow up in Bozeman, Montana,” Fowler posted to social media. “Hope LC packed his warmest coat! Seeing him on my TV tomorrow will warm my heart.”

Corso last appeared on the show Oct. 22 in Eugene, Oregon and missed the last three weeks as he recuperated from an undisclosed health issue. 

In Austin, Texas, last weekend, “College GameDay” host Rece Davis provided an update on Corso.
