College GameDay reveals Week 3 guest picker at Penn State
ESPN’s “College GameDay” has revealed its celebrity guest picker for its Week 3 broadcast from State College ahead of the Penn State-Auburn game.
And one of the Nittany Lions’ all-time greats has the honors on Saturday as New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley makes his latest return to Happy Valley. Barkley, of course, tore his ACL in Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season and is looking to get back on track in the early stages of 2021. He registered 13 carries for 57 yards and 2 catches for 12 yards as the Giants fell to the Washington Football Team on “Thursday Night Football”.
Barkley’s career at Penn State was nothing short of sensational. He totaled back-to-back 18-touchdown seasons on the ground in 2016 and 2017, with his 43 rushing touchdowns standing as a program record as he was a 2-time Big Ten offensive player of the year and an All-American in 2017. The 2nd-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft was the league’s offensive rookie of the year as he notched 1,307 rushing yards and 721 receiving yards, combining for 15 total touchdowns on the ground and through the air.
Penn State and Auburn kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
