Out western PA, Washington Pa at college. This tree is loaded with clumps of acorns. Wouldn't take many to fill a deer.
Leaves looks similar to black oak but bigger and not pointy tips. Bark is smooth almost like a Maple.
Very small cap on the acorns, they sort of look like black oak acorns but bigger then a Chestnut oak acorns?

Northern Red Oak

acorn, ¾" to 1¼" long; the cup shallow, saucer shaped, covering 1/4 of the nut, cup-scales reddish-brown, narrow, tight, sometimes fuzzy on the edges. The acorns need two growing-seasons to ripen; the kernel is bitter.

Bark is a smooth and greenish-brown or grey, maturing to dark grey or nearly black and is divided into rounded ridges.

Black oak leaves have points on edges.

White oaks have rounded edges

My guess black oak
