College GameDay came to us from University Park, Pennsylvania, for the Week 8 game between No. 16 Michigan and No. 7 Penn State.

College GameDay Location Week 8

As always, the College GameDay crew made its picks and predictions for the biggest college football games of the weekend. This week’s celebrity guest picker, Lara Spencer, is a big-time Penn State fan and alum. Spencer is best known as the host of Good Morning America.

Typically, the highlight of the show is when host Lee Corso makes his pick by donning the head of the team's mascot he is picking. He went with the Nittany Lion and Penn State, who are 7.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The game is set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. EST from Beaver Stadium.
