ESPN’s College Gameday Predicts WVU/Penn State Game

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers enter the season opener at Penn State as major underdogs against the #7 Nittany Lions. Here’s how the “experts” on ESPN’s College Gameday thinks the game will play out:

Desmond Howard: “I think Drew Allar is going to be a hell of a quarterback, but Penn State won’t cover. West Virginia will hang around, but Penn State will win.” Penn State

Pat McAfee: “Neal Brown is coaching for his job at West Virginia. There’s a guy named Garrett Greene who is playing quarterback for West Virginia. He’s going to run wild at Happy Valley! Give me West Virginia in another upset! Penn State gets knocked DOWN!” West Virginia

Lee Corso: “Penn State, #7 preseason, wins it with defense. Penn State covers.” Penn State

Kirk Herbstreit: “Is this game in Morgantown or State College? This is potentially a coming out party for Drew Allar, but it’s really what’s around him, dynamic playmakers and one of the best defenses in the country.” Penn State
