Penn State fans at Saturday’s “College GameDay” didn’t hold back in support of their Nittany Lions.
Or, maybe, they didn’t hold back their contempt for Auburn ahead of the Tigers’ game with the Nittany Lions.
As has become a tradition as much as the marching bands and student sections, homemade signs were on display for the popular ESPN pre-game show.
They did not disappoint.
“College GameDay” aired from the Old Main Lawn on the Penn State campus ahead of the White Out game at Beaver Stadium, as the No.10 Nittany Lions take on the No.22 Auburn Tigers.
The pre-game signage started the day.
1. Little brother Auburn
There was the usual “We want Bama” sign with an Auburn twist.
2. Auburn Shake and Bake
A fan went to Talladega Nights on the Tigers.
3. Recruitment of Forrest Gump
Fans dove into Alabama legend and lore and, of course, recruiting.
4. Bo Nix plays on the road, so …
Auburn’s quarterback hasn’t had his best road games, and Penn State fans seem to know it.
5. Bo Nix, part 2
Well he’s not wrong, I guess.
6. A White Out means Brown Out
It looks like the Tigers will be a bit overwhelmed during the White Out, according to fans.
7. Quick hits
Check out some of the other signs destined for Auburn.
