The game, which is at Beaver Stadium, is a “White Out” and a good turnout is expected. Penn State breezed past Ball State 44-13 at home on Saturday and have a chance to start 3-0 next week in prime time. Auburn, meanwhile, has scored 60 points in both of its victories to start the season.
Penn State and Auburn have only played each other twice all-time, but have never played in the regular season. The last matchup took place in 2003 at the Outback Bowl, with Penn State winning 43-14.
Kickoff for the Week 3 game is set for Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
