ESPN could have sent College GameDay to Appalachian State on Saturday, however the Penn StateAuburn game is obviously in the spotlight for the crew when it came time and energy to make their weekly picks.
Because of playing an opener on Thursday night and having a low-profile home game last weekend, this is actually the first-time Penn State has already established a casino game featured in the Saturday picks segment to summarize this program.
Desmond Howard needed a large game from Nick Singleton in a Penn State win.
Pat McAfee, the newcomer on the staff for College GameDay, went defense with love for Joey Porter Jr.
The celebrity guest picker, country music artist and Appalachian State alum Luke Combs, went with the house team having an Auburn pick.
Lee Corso countered with a pick of Penn State.
Kirk Herbstreit, who called Penn State a sleeper pick in the beginning of the season to create some noise, also closed things out with a pick for Penn State, citing he trusts the Nittany Lions and their balance a lot more than Auburn.
