‘College GameDay’ signs take aim at Auburn: ‘We want Bama, not their little brother’


Penn State fans in attendance of Saturday’s “College GameDay” didn’t hold back in support of their Nittany Lions.

Or, perhaps, they didn’t hold back in their disdain for Auburn ahead of the Tigers’ game with the homestanding Nittany Lions.

As has become as much a tradition as marching bands and student sections, homemade signs were on display for the popular ESPN pregame show.

They didn’t disappoint.

“College GameDay” broadcast from the Old Main Lawn on Penn State’s campus ahead of the White Out game at Beaver Stadium, as the No. 10 Nittany Lions take on the No. 22 Auburn Tigers. 

Pregame signage got the day started.

There was the customary “We want Bama” sign with an Auburn spin.

One fan went Talladega Nights on the Tigers.

Fans dug deep into Alabama legend and lore, and, of course, recruitment.

The Auburn quarterback hasn’t had his best games on the road, and Penn State fans seem to know it.

Well, he isn’t wrong, I guess.

It appears the Tigers will be a little overwhelmed during the White Out, according to the fans.

Check out some of the other signs aimed at Auburn.

The Penn State Nittany Lions host the Auburn Tigers in college football 2021 action Saturday, Sept. 18, at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa., at 6:30 p.m. (7:30 p.m. ET).

The game will be live streamed on fuboTV, which offers a 7-day free trial. The most basic of plans is the “fubo standard” package, which comprises 100-plus channels for $64.99 per month. Like all cord-cutting alternatives, there are plenty of options, especially for sports.

The Tigers and Nittany Lions will be broadcast on ABC.
