Michigan Homecoming Clash Sold Out

Penn State’s primetime Homecoming clash against Michigan is officially sold out, Penn State athletics announced this morning.

The October 12 game will be broadcast on ESPN at 5 p.m. following a week of Homecoming activities and the highly anticipated Homecoming parade. The game has also been declared an all stadium white out.

Michigan is no stranger to the White House treatment. The Wolverines last played Penn State in 2010 under the Beaver Stadium lights in front of 108,539 screaming fans while Matt McGloin led the Nittany Lions to a 41-31 victory.

This is welcoming news to an athletic department that has struggled to sell tickets this season. Penn State has failed to crack 93,000 fans during the first three home games — a first for the current version of Beaver Stadium.

Even if just for one game, vintage Beaver Stadium is back. And with a few more scholarships under his belt, Bill O’Brien is sure to have a full roster of recruits on the sideline to impress with this atmosphere.
