Happy Valley was rocking in Week 3, and everything about the White Out was rocking from start to finish.

ESPN’s College GameDay made the trip to town to spotlight the top-25 battle between Auburn and Penn State, and that broadcast pulled in huge numbers. The battle between SEC and B1G teams set a great backdrop and led to the most-watched Week 3 College GameDay broadcast since 2016.

Among other accolades, it was the most-watched GameDay since 2019 Rivalry Week and saw huge percentage boosts over the Week 3 broadcasts from 2020 and 2019.

Nittanyville also received recognition for setting a great environment all night long. The Penn State student section earned the Live Más Student Section of the Week after a raucous night in Beaver Stadium.

Now, the Nittany Lions will turn their attention to Villanova and a bid to get to 4-0 this weekend. Saturday’s kickoff is set for 12 pm EST on BTN.
