The Whiteout returns this weekend when the Nittany Lions take on the Auburn Tigers. Penn State has opened as a seven-point favorite but the line has already dropped down to -5 at the time of publication.

Penn State and Auburn both sit and 2-0 with the Nittany Lions boasting an impressive win over Wisconsin, as well as reigning MAC champions Ball State. Auburn has scored a combined 122 points against Akron and FCS Alabama State.

Saturday's game marks the first time an SEC program has visited Happy Valley in a decade - when Alabama beat Penn State 27-10. This will be Auburn's first regular-season game against a Big Ten team since 1931, and is new head coach Bryan Harsin's first road game as the Tiger's head coach.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM EST and the game will air on ABC, with ESPN's College GameDay back in town as well.
