ESPN announced the return of College GameDay to Happy Valley on Saturday night after the Nittany Lions moved to 6-0 with a win over Iowa. For the show's third appearance to State College in as many years, the location will be a bit different, however. Penn State announced earlier today that the set will be the recently renovated HUB Lawn. 

The show's previous visits in 2017 and 2018 both originated from the Old Main Lawn in the heart of campus. However, the iconic bell tower is undergoing renovations, leaving a large scaffolding in the middle of the scenic backdrop.

In addition to Saturday's show, College Football Live with Maria Taylor, Desmond Howard, and David Pollack will air from the set on Friday afternoon at 3:00 p.m., as well as additional segments on Friday morning and early Saturday.
