College GameDay Crew Arrives In Happy Valley

They’re back in our city borough, folks.

Trucks from ESPN’s College GameDay began arriving at Penn State Tuesday evening to prepare for this weekend’s upcoming show.

For the fifth year in a row, College GameDay will broadcast from Happy Valley ahead of No. 10 Penn State football’s White Out clash with No. 22 Auburn. This time, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, and the rest of the gang will bring the show to you live from Old Main Lawn rather than the HUB Lawn or Beaver Stadium itself.

Next weekend will be Penn State’s 22nd overall appearance on the show and its 10th time hosting.

The pregame show will begin at 9 a.m. and air until noon, but you’ll likely need to head over at the crack of dawn if you’d like to get a front-row seat. Students can begin lining up at 5:30 a.m. on Saturday to get into the pit, which opens at 6:45 a.m.

Fans in the pit are encouraged, but not required, to wear a face mask. Attendees in the pit can’t bring backpacks or any food or drinks.

Penn State football (2-0) will kick off against Auburn (2-0) at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 18. The matchup will be broadcast nationally on ABC.
