ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit has consistently heaped praise on Penn State's student section and that continued on Saturday night.

Herbstreit was at Beaver Stadium for Penn State's big home win over Michigan.

At the end of the Nittany Lions' victory, Herbstreit had some serious praise for the Wolverines.

“I just want to tell Penn State and their fans that this is the best student section in the country by far,” Herbstreit said. “Best game ops in the country. They do an incredible job. Every time we get a chance to come here, it’s one of those games you circle [on your calendar] in the preseason. They didn’t let us down this year.”

Penn State improved to 7-0 with the win on Saturday night. The Nittany Lions have two big road games coming up, with trips to Michigan State and Minnesota.

James Franklin's team then returns home to play Indiana.
