While many fans are excited about one of the biggest football games in school history on Saturday, it’s important to remember that many other Penn State teams are also in action this weekend. Here’s a preview of the weekend to come in Penn State Sports.

Football Eve: Friday at 7 P.M.

The 2012 football season starts off with a bang at Football Eve, the annual preseason pep rally. Enjoy Coach O’Brien speaking, along with many other varsity coaches, and learn the Blue Band’s new song.

Women’s Volleyball vs. #6 Stanford, Men’s Soccer vs. Duquesne: Friday at 8 P.M.

Both teams start at the same time, with the Soccer team taking on Duquesne at Jeffrey Field, and the #3 Women’s Volleyball team playing #6 Stanford as part of the Nike Big Four Tournament. Football Eve is scheduled to end around 7:30, with fans being able to march together to the game of their choice afterwards.

Football Team Arrival: Saturday at 9:15 A.M.

The team is scheduled to arrive an hour earlier than last year, and the Blue Buses will pull up to the stadium at 9:15 a.m. Many fans are expected to line the tunnel and show their support as the team walks in to warm up.
