The trip to Penn State will be somewhat historic for Auburn and the SEC
This weekend, the Penn State Nittany Lions have a massive game to prove they are for real this season in the CFP race.
The No. 10 Nittany Lions have the No.22 Auburn Tigers headed to Happy Valley. Yup, you heard that right; an SEC team is coming up north.
Auburn at Penn State is:
1) Auburn’s first B1G road trip since 1931 at Wisconsin
2) Only the 3rd time a ranked SEC team has visited a ranked B1G team (in conferences at time of game), joining 2011 Bama at PSU and 1965 Georgia at Michigan

SEC teams rarely ever make the trip up north to face B1G opponents; this is only the 3rd time a ranked SEC team will be in a hostile B1G environment. The other two times, 1965 Georgia, at Michigan, and 2011 Alabama made the trip to Happy Valley.
This will be Auburns’ first B1G road trip in 90 years! They played at the Wisconsin Badgers in 1931.
Auburn is 2-0 to start the year with wins against Akron and Alabama State, where the scores were 60-10 and 62-0, respectively.
This will be the Tigers’ first real test of the 2021 season.
Penn State has already passed their first test as they beat the now No.18 Wisconsin Badgers 16-10 on the road.
Happy Valley will be rocking in all-white Saturday Night. You can catch it all at 7:30 ET on ABC.
