Illinois Basketball Student Section Tries (And Fails) To Surprise Penn State


Amid a chorus of “Take it off!” cheers from Nittany Nation, Illinois basketball student section, known as the Orange Krush, tried and failed to surprise Penn State at the Bryce Jordan Center

A group of about 100 Illinois students entered the BJC dressed as Penn Staters and only revealed their Illinois shirts at tip-off. The away “invasion” is an annual tradition for the Orange Krush, but thanks to a leaked email, no one was surprised.

Better luck next time, Orange Krush. You can follow along with today’s game @OnwardState.
