BTN Tailgate, Nissan Heisman House Come To Penn State For Nebraska Game

No. 10 Penn State football will play its final home game of the season against Nebraska this weekend. But before that, the Big Ten Network’s answer to College Gameday, the BTN Tailgate, will be held outside of the Bryce Jordan Center on Curtin Road at 10 a.m.

BTN Tailgate begins at 10 a.m. and runs until the first round of college football games kick off at noon. It’ll be hosted by Dave Revsine alongside analysts Gerry DiNardo, Stanley Jackson, and Anthony “Spice” Adams — a Penn State alumnus who was drafted in 2003 by the San Francisco 49ers. You might know him from his YouTube channel.

The rules for fans who want to attend BTN Tailgate are essentially the same as those for College GameDay, but one major difference is fans are not allowed to camp out all night ahead of the show in the morning. No disrespect to the Big Ten Network, but we don’t foresee this being a problem.

In addition to BTN Tailgate, the Nissan Heisman House will make a stop in Happy Valley prior to this weekend’s Stripe Out game. Former Nittany Lion stars Derrick Williams and LaVar Arrington will both appear on ESPN Radio’s Chalk Talk with host Ryen Russillo. Williams will chat with Russillo from 12:30 to 2 p.m., followed by Arrington’s appearance, which is scheduled to last until 3:30 p.m.

The Heisman Trophy will be in Happy Valley as part of the Heisman House festivities and fans will be able to take photos with it and vote in a poll for who they think will win the Heisman. It’s probably safe to say a certain running back will receive most of the votes throughout the day.
