For fans of collegiate football, there is nothing quite like waking up on a Saturday morning for a full day of sports and College GameDay.

In order to get their football Saturday off to a good start, many college fans flip the channel over to ESPN. There, the College GameDay crew fills watchers in on the day’s lineup of exciting football games. The show features several college football experts who do nothing but talk about the sport for three hours. It’s heaven on a television set for pigskin fans who are tuning in for the expert analysis. The crew features former college players Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard, former head coach Lee Corso alongside ESPN anchor Reece Davis.

The true stars of College GameDay, however, are the fans in attendance. The show sets up at a different location each week and encourages students and fans to show up for the big event. It’s a big deal when College GameDay comes to your town to discuss your favorite college team.

Fans also get uber creative with homemade signs that dig at their school’s opponents. The signs that fans make for College GameDay have taken on a life of their own. It is one of the most popular segments on the show when the camera pans around looking for the best homemade signs. Today (Saturday), College GameDay finds itself in Happy Valley where the Penn State Nittany Lions are hosting the Auburn Tigers. It’s a huge matchup as a Big 10 powerhouse and an SEC powerhouse will collide later today. But first — let’s take a look at those hilarious signs.

College GameDay Signs From Happy Valley Do Not Disappoint

Auburn quarterback Bo Nix seems to be getting the brunt of punishment from College GameDay Signs. It is uncommon to see fans take shots at the opposing team’s starting quarterback.

“Wikipedia is more reliable than Bo Nix,” One sign reads.


“Bo Nix fine dines at Waffle House,” another sign reads.

Double Ouch…but hey — Waffle House isn’t too bad.

Other College GameDay signs went for a bit looser derogatory meaning by encompassing the whole Auburn team. Penn State fans held back nothing in creativity to insult their opposition today.

“If you ain’t first, you’re Auburn,” another sign says with credit to the hit comedy movie “Talladega Nights.”

“We want Bama, not their little brother,” another says. Penn State fans might want to be careful what they wish for with this one.

This is just a small sampling of the College GameDay fun and the signs that make us laugh. So enjoy a long day of college football — no matter which team you are rooting for.
