Penn State Football Scoreboard Project On Track As Season Draws Closer

The Blue White game will be a little different looking this year. The ongoing scoreboard project will still be in the works as fans take their seat this coming April. That means you’ll have to keep your eyes on the field if you don’t want to miss a great pass or a spectacular run.

The project is still on track to be completed by the home opener so fans don’t need to worry about missing a replay when the game really matters.

“The actual LED panels will start arriving on site today,” said project lead Jason Smith. “They should start going up as early as the end of the week on the south board if the inspections go alright. If not this week definitely next week. Besides the panels going up there won’t be much activity that the public can see until the logos are added to the exterior which will be early summer.”

When the original scoreboards were installed fans took to the fields near Beaver Stadium to watch large cranes lift the frames into place. There won’t be any spectacular lifting on this project though as the frames of the current structure will be used to house the new video boards.

“The new boards will utilize the existing rear and side panels of the original board,” Smith said. “The structural modifications are currently wrapping up inside the existing box, but with the exception of some minor structural painting the panels will remain the same. In lieu of replacing these panels there will be lighted logos added to the rear of both the North & South boards.”

It sounds like the final product will be something to see this season and fans should be able to find their way to Beaver Stadium thanks to the lighted logos that are already making Bat Signal jokes irresistible.
