Bills Bring Blue Band Back to Buffalo


It looks like the Penn State Blue Band will have the opportunity to play before collegiate and professional football crowds this upcoming semester.

The Buffalo Bills invited Penn State’s marching band to perform at its game on November 3, according to the Alumni Blue Band. The Bills host the Kansas City Chiefs for an early afternoon game. It is still unknown what the Blue Band’s role will be. On the day before the Bills’ game, Beaver Stadium will host the Fighting Illini.

The Buffalo Bills and Penn State histories intersect. Unofficial Blue Band historian @map408psu found that the organization played for Buffalo during Monday Night Football. Bryan Scott (pictured above, #43) is the only active player for Buffalo who was also a Nittany Lion.

The invitation was announced the same week that Buffalo’s AFC East rivals, the New England Patriots, released two former Nittany Lions.
