Your Penn State Pet Can Win You Football Tickets

Penn State doesn’t just have the best fans in the nation, we have the best pets too. And that’s why Weis Markets, along with Purina, is holding the “Pet of the Game Photo Contest,” which could be the greatest thing ever.

Anyone can submit a picture of their pet in Penn State colors or gear and they are in the running to be one of 10 weekly winners of a $50 Weis Markets gift card. And the grand prize is awesome: eight tickets to the Penn State vs. Michigan State game on Saturday, Nov. 29, plus a $250 Weis Markets gift card. That gift card could help you throw quite the tailgate for the season finale!

Hopefully everyone with a Penn State Pet takes part, because the only thing better than animals dressed up in human clothes are animals dressed up in Penn State gear.

Here is the current top five of the contest:


This is Casper, who is holding down the fort for all felines out there and clearly too cool to be dressed like his canine friends. The sass is almost tangible.


Reigning champion Nittany “Doodle” Gracie gives an awesome power stance by the Nittany Lion Shrine.


Alli and Boomer look great together decked out in their Penn State best.


Sugar, a petite model, is nothing but smiles in her game day gear and is really living on the edge (of this bed).


Dodger is a vision of Penn State pride.

There are many more choices to vote for where that came from, and they can be viewed here. Good luck to all the Penn State Pets!
