Tailgating is a lifestyle. "I Tailgate With the Best" is one of the most popular Penn State-themed shirts, and every football Saturday includes tens of thousands of people using parking lots, intramural fields and fraternity yards to get smashed, grill, and of course compete. Here, we have for you the definitive power ranking of tailgate games.

The odds are against us on this one, Penn State. The Nittany Lions are facing one of their largest home spread deficits ever for Saturday's Whiteout against the Buckeyes, and for really good reason. But hey, at least the disparities between Penn State and our nuttily named (sorry) opponent give us a chance to have some fun with numbers!

Kevin Montminy Dave Cole
Kevin Montminy is not your traditional Big Ten captain. The Centre County native won't be featured on any preseason watch lists, all Big Ten teams, or even the Nittany Lion starting five. In fact, last year he saw just 14 minutes on the court, and in his three years with the team, he's only scored 24 points. But none of this stopped Montminy from earning the honor of being a captain on the 2014-2015 basketball team, and earning his first scholarship after spending three years as a walk-on.

Ohio State has a very dominant defensive line, and there is no way to sugar coat the fact that the Buckeyes' front four could potentially have a field day against Penn State's weak offensive line. What makes Ohio State's line different than other lines Penn State has faced this season, you ask? Well, let's take a look.

On a cold, windy October day, the last thing one would expect to see standing next to the Willard building would be a group of shirtless atheists, begging you to pelt them with water balloons. But, in order to raise money for activities for the Penn State Atheists and Agnostic club, this is exactly what a brave, and somewhat cold, group of atheists decided to do.

Allen Robinson came into the Jaguars' organization with high expectations after the club drafted him 61st overall in the second round. After a slow start to the season, it appears that Robinson has found his groove in Jacksonville, as he begins to establish himself as a reliable go-to target for fellow rookie quarterback Blake Bortles.

Aside from being a great coach and wordsmith during his time in Happy Valley, Bill O'Brien always knew how to hold a damn fine press conference. That hasn't changed since he left for the NFL.

Zack Mills is a name that rings a bell for countless Nittany Lion fans for a variety of reasons. Some recognize him as the sophomore sensation who led Penn State to the Capital One bowl in 2002, only to fall short by a score of 13-9. Some recognize Mills as the quarterback Michael Robinson replaced in 2005, who went on to lead the Nittany Lions to a Big Ten Championship and an Orange Bowl title.

Penn State has the best run defense in the country and the best overall defense in the Big Ten. It will need to keep that up to have a chance against Ohio State next weekend.

Halloween is arguably the greatest weekend here at Penn State--costume parties and candy, what could be better? Unfortunately, it is also one of the most expensive. If you want to do Halloween properly, you have to have at least three clever costumes, because repeating is lame, and not dressing up is even lamer. Pre-made Halloween costumes happen to be incredibly expensive, and pretty much super boring. So, your options are pretty limited. Your best bet is scouring thrift shops and your own closet to DIY your own perfect costumes. Here are a few options that we came up with.

Amidst a climate of uproar in the heat of a long, grueling, and vastly fatal Vietnam War, a troublesome pattern of violent protests on college campuses was developing across America. It wasn’t all that long ago when students marched in droves to university president Eric Walker’s house and sent rocks crashing through his windows as the president retreated to safety.

Maiya Colon is a young toddler beaming with life and curiosity, much like anybody her age. The only difference is, young Maiya is facing the hardest challenge she will ever have to face. Charlie Shuman is a freshman offensive tackle playing football for Penn State. The two share a connection that goes above anything else, as it is Charlie's goodwill that has had such a tremendous impact on Maiya and her family.
