After the first couple renditions of ESPN College GameDay being held up outside the BJC with Beaver Stadium in the background, the GameDay crew made the move to Old Main’s lawn back in 2017 and 2018. With Old Main getting some work done in 2019, ESPN set up shop outside the Hub. Well now, with ESPN back in town, Penn State officially announced that Old Main will once again be the spot for Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, and Desmond Howard.

There’s a whole bunch of parking measures being taken because of it, so if you’re interested in that, you can read it here. But I for one am just pumped that GameDay is back outside Old Main. To put it simply, Old Main is the best building on Earth, and it serves as a picturesque backdrop to what is the best campus on Earth. It’s also in an ideal location, with it right off College and Beaver Avenue, making it easy to drop by for the beginning and ending of GameDay, with the time spent inbetween *getting drinks or food at a number of walkable bars.
*Though, now with a mask!
Looking forward to recreating this atmosphere again.
