Penn State’s Broadcast Was College GameDay’s Most-Watched Since 2019

Last weekend was one to remember for every Penn State fan. As it turns out, it was a big one for ESPN’s crew, too.

College GameDay’s broadcast from Happy Valley on September 18 was the show’s most-watched episode since the end of 2019, according to Penn State football. The show, which aired live from Old Main Lawn ahead of the Nittany Lions’ clash with Auburn, averaged 1.9 million viewers throughout its taping and 2.4 million viewers in the final hour.

Additionally, Penn State’s episode was GameDay’s most-watched week three broadcast dating all the way back to 2016.

Total viewership of Penn State’s broadcast was up 84% from GameDay’s 2020 fan-less visit to Happy Valley, which aired from inside Beaver Stadium. This weekend’s episode even topped 2019’s viewership by 7%.

From a wide array of hilarious homemade signs to a special appearance from Saquon Barkley, College GameDay’s visit to Penn State was ridiculously fun. Check out our recap to see what you might’ve missed if you couldn’t catch it live.
