The Obligatory PSU Pregame Show returns this Fall for its 4th season!

We are happy to return to Eleven Sports & NESN for 2019. Check back soon for full cable, satellite, and network coverage info!

The+Obligatory+PSU+PreGame+ShowThis Fall, Nittany Lions fans will start their Saturdays with another season of “The Obligatory PSU PreGame Show,” a TV “tailgate” full of the fun, camaraderie, and passion – from joy to heartbreak and back again – that makes Penn State football the healthy obsession of students, alumni, and fans across the country. For every loyal Nittany Lion who can’t be there in person, it’s the next best thing: A weekly dose of Happy Valley to kick off the football weekend.

Starring PSU postal icon, Mike “the Mailman” Herr, every Penn Stater’s favorite and most beloved mailman; Brandon Noble, former defensive tackle for Penn State, the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins; Chris Buchignani, the founding president of The Nittany Valley Society; and Kevin Horne, proud holder of three Penn State degrees and former managing editor of Onward State. Giving you the next-best tailgating experience, no matter how far you are from Dear Old State. They’re the most unlikely and lovable bunch of dudes in football pregame show history.
