Penn State Nittany Lions Football Details
“We are … PENN STATE!”
A fall Saturday in Happy Valley is pretty much the epitome of college football. Leaves turning, fans tailgating, and Big Ten clashes. What could be better?
Penn State has been playing football since 1887. The program ranks among the top 10 in all-time victories, with more than 40 consensus All-America selections, a Heisman Trophy winner (John Cappelletti, 1973) and a couple of national titles.
Many observers have dubbed Penn State as “Linebacker U” due to its star players at the position, which include Pro Football Hall of Famers Jack Ham and Dave Robinson.
The Nittany Lions play home games on campus Beaver Stadium, which seats more than 106,000 fans, is the second-largest stadium in the Western Hemisphere and the third-largest in the world. On more than a half-dozen occasions, Penn State has crammed in 110,000-plus fans for a home game.
Penn State’s in-game traditions are entertaining. Beyond its roaring, familiar chant and simple blue and white uniforms, watch for the drum major to do a flip during the pregame show. Also, when the Nittany Lions take the field … deafening is a good word for the atmosphere.
Regular tailgaters recommend arriving at least four hours before kickoff if you don’t have a premium parking pass. Also, make sure to get some ice cream at the Penn State University Creamery while you’re in town.
Penn State doesn’t have a main traditional rival any more, as it played as an independent until joining the Big Ten in 1993. Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State are its most notable foes in the Big Ten’s Eastern Division.
