Penn-State Auburn predictions: College GameDay crew makes picks
Penn State vs. Auburn is Week 3’s featured game for ESPN’s “College GameDay” as the crew was in State College on Saturday. After a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, excitement is high in Happy Valley as the first “White Out” game will be played at Beaver Stadium since 2019.
And the “Saturday Selections” for the primetime matchup were unanimous.
Celebrity guest picker Saquon Barkley was welcomed warmly by Nittany Lions fans in his latest return to campus and, unsurprisingly, the Penn State great and Giants running back made the call for his alma mater to beat the Tigers.
Desmond Howard echoed Barkley’s selection, also picking the Nittany Lions. That left it to Lee Corso, whose headgear pick was Penn State.
Meanwhile, as is customary, Kirk Herbstreit didn’t make a pick as he’s set to call the game alongside Chris Fowler on ABC.
Penn State and Auburn kick off from Beaver Stadium at 7:30 p.m. ET.
