Annual Football Eve Celebration Tonight

There are many great pre-game traditions which surround Penn State football — the bus, the flip, and of course the stadium wide “We Are” Chant — but before all those get underway, there is Football Eve.

For those who don’t know, Football Eve is a pep rally themed event at Beaver Stadium attended by a couple thousand fans with the coach and the rest of the team. While Bill O’Brien has made many appearances this past year, none will be more exciting than tonight in Beaver Stadium.

Joe Paterno was always a staple at Football Eve, and his preseason remarks would win over the crowd instantly. O’Brien should have the same impact as we head into one of the most anticipated seasons in Penn State history.

And, for the first time ever, the event will be streamed on ESPN.

Grab your jerseys and pom-poms because entrance and parking are free, festivities start at 6 p.m, and the pep rally begins at 7 p.m.
