White Out Set For Oct. 25 Against Ohio State

Penn State announced today that its annual White Out game will be under the lights against Ohio State at 8 p.m. on Oct. 25. As expected, the marquee game will feature one of the greatest spectacles in college football, cementing the game as the highlight of Penn State’s otherwise weak home schedule.

Some of Penn State’s greatest games have occurred during White Outs, most notably the Ohio State win in 2005 and last year’s homecoming matchup with Michigan, one that is still fresh in Nittany Lion fans’ minds. This is the second time in the last three seasons that the Buckeyes will have to face the White Out noise, overcoming it in a 35-23 win in 2012. There is truly no other spectacle in college football quite like the White Out, with Beaver Stadium giving Penn State an even greater home-field advantage. Hopefully, that magic stays alive this year when the Buckeyes visit Happy Valley.

The game will also serve as Uplifting Athletes Day, where the Penn State chapter will present a check to the national organization for the Kidney Cancer Association. The chapter will be holding its Lift for Life event on July 11 with proceeds going to the charity.

Penn State also announced themes for all other home games. They are:

Massachusetts, Sept. 20: Band Day and Celebration of 50 Years of Women’s Athletics at Penn State

Northwestern, Sept. 27: Homecoming and Alumni Band

Maryland, Nov. 1: All-U Day and THON Day

Temple, Nov. 15: Military Appreciation Day and Parade of Champions

Michigan State, Nov. 29: Senior Day

Descriptions for those themes can be found here. Oh, and in case you need any more reason to get excited for football season, here you go.
