The hype surrounding the Penn State football team this fall is through the roof. Even those that have written off the Nittany Lions in past years believe that this is the year that the glass ceiling is shattered and we will finally see Penn State reach the college football playoff. One bucket list accomplishment would be to knock off Ohio State in Columbus. Personalities like College Football Analyst Mike Golic Jr and Barstool Sports Brandon Walker both see Penn State doing very well this fall.

Popular CFB personalities have bold predictions for Penn State

If Penn State makes the college football playoff in its final year of the four-team format, that would establish more credibility for the program and James Franklin. To take the program from very good to great is a significant jump, but with the 2023 roster, it’s possible.

Mike Golic Jr had this to say about Penn State on the GoJo Podcast, “I would say it’s one of the teams that’s got legitimate College Football Playoff hopes and potential with your roster right now and are walking into this season incredibly hopeful.” It’s true Penn State has had the most buzz around the program since arguably the 2017 season, but hype and buzz don’t mean anything if the results don’t happen on the field.

Golic also has a lot of respect for Drew Allar “And when you’ve got 6-5 240 sitting behind him [Sean Clifford] with all of those abilities who wouldn’t be tantalized by that?” Penn State fans are hopeful that Allar can take what he learned from Sean and bring some of those leadership qualities to the field this fall. But it doesn’t stop with Golic Jr, Brandon Walker from Barstool Sports released his own hot take on social media earlier this week.

Brandon Walker is high on Penn State this fall.

A personality that is known for calling it as he sees it, Brandon Walker from Barstool Sports has become a popular face of college football at least from a social media standpoint. He is a host on the Unnecessary Roughness podcast where he speaks all things college football. He is most known for his love for Mississippi State and the SEC in general, but he tweeted out the below on Wednesday night which had many Penn State fans excited.

If Penn State can win the Big Ten and make the College Football Playoff this will truly be a season to remember.
