Bleacher Report Ranks Student Section Number One

Remember that one time in 2005 when Kirk Herbstreit infamously declared Penn State the best student section in the country? Remember the subsequent seven years when the marketing guru and his disciples tried to recreate that electric game day atmosphere over and over again against Coastal Carolina and Akron?

Well luckily for anyone who has entered Beaver Stadium over the course of the past seven seasons, the father of “The Greatest Show in College Football” was recently fired. However, that great loss is not stopping Penn State’s student from getting the respect it deserves. Yesterday, Bleacher Report released their list of the best student sections in college football, with Penn State coming in at number one.

This student section is the best in the country and for a night game that is also a whiteout, there is nobody even close to what this student section has to offer.

Beaver Stadium is one of the largest and loudest in the entire country. The student section is a little more brash than a lot of the others, but they stand the whole game in support of their team and are never afraid to say what is on their mind.

Check out “Zombie Nation” as it is played in the middle of another whiteout crowd.

Truly something special.

Okay, so the nod from Bleacher Report isn’t nearly as prestigious as the one from Herby. But it’s nice to know that we still got it after all these years. Now maybe we’ll fill up at least half the student section for that dismal noon kickoff against Ohio.
