ESPN Names Penn State Student Section The Best In Big Ten

Does Penn State have the best student section in the Big Ten? At least one writer at ESPN.com thinks so.

Said ESPN.com’s Brian Bennett:

“There’s simply no better student section in the country than the one at Beaver Stadium,” Bennett writes. “Penn State students love their Nittany Lions, and they arrive on game days ready to cheer loud, sing songs and wear the right colors. The S-Zone forms a giant blue S on a white background that looks incredible on TV and in person. Students camp out for tickets in the old “Paternoville,” and the school sold more than 21,000 student season tickets last season.”

It’s hard to argue that between camping out early in the week for good seats and the coordination in the White Outs that any student section does it better than the one found in Happy Valley.

Few stadiums have student sections as large as Beaver Stadiums but the Nittany Lion faithful have plenty of competition from schools like Wisconsin and Ohio State. Who is really the best will always be up for debate but the argument is a strong one that the honor belongs in State College.

Football - The Penn State Nittany Lions football program currently resides in the Big Ten conference and has won two National Championships. Known for tradition, Beaver Stadium, and Joe Paterno, the program is a point of pride and solidarity in the community. Read more
