‘Bama to Face White House at Beaver Stadium
In what comes as a shock to pretty much nobody, Beaver Stadium will be a sea of white when Penn State hosts the Alabama Crimson Tide on September 10.
It was hinted a few weeks ago by Penn State football Communications & Branding Director Guido D’Elia, but a video released yesterday by Penn State football confirmed that Alabama will the first White House at Beaver Stadium since 2009.
For those concerned that no other game was given the White Out distinction, don’t panic, as student White Outs are not declared until the week of the designated game. I would venture to guess that the Nebraska game on November 12th will be a student White Out, and I wouldn’t be shocked if Iowa on October 8th was as well.
The White House was first adopted by Penn State in 2007. Penn State has gone 2-1 in “White House” games, defeating Notre Dame (2007) and Illinois (2008) and losing to Iowa in 2009. There was no White House in 2010, though you may remember the controversy surrounding that decision.
