Your Guide To ESPN’s Virtual College GameDay

In case you’ve been living under a rock, College GameDay is coming to Happy Valley for the fourth consecutive season.

Kirk Herbstreit and the rest of the gang are coming to Penn State for the Nittany Lions’ Halloween showdown against Ohio State on Saturday, October 31.

GameDay will look a lot different this year without its typical crowd of thousands of Penn Staters. However, students and fans will have the opportunity to virtually participate in Saturday’s fun.

Here’s our brief guide to ESPN’s virtual College GameDay experience.

Time & Place

The show will begin its live taping at 9 a.m. and air until noon on ESPN. In previous years, the GameDay crew would set up on Old Main Lawn or on the HUB Lawn.

This year, though, the crew will set up shop somewhere inside Beaver Stadium. Fans and students are prohibited from hanging out around the set due to coronavirus mitigation protocols.

However, there are other ways students can participate in ESPN’s flagship morning show…

How To Participate

Although you won’t be able to hang out near the set, GameDay is giving fans and students an opportunity to participate virtually.

Fans and students can register online for the chance to hang out in GameDay’s virtual pit. Additionally, homemade signs can be shared on social media with the hashtag #gamedaysigns to potentially be featured on the show’s social media channels and TV program.

Also, we want to see your best GameDay signs! Submit your GameDay signs and pictures to [email protected] to potentially be featured on our website.


Last season, College GameDay came to town for Penn State’s White Out matchup against Michigan. While it’ll be a much different experience this year, you still have the chance to participate in a virtual and safe way.

Saturday night, the No. 18 ranked Nittany Lions will kick off their home opener against the No. 3 ranked Buckeyes at 7:30 p.m. on ABC.
