Beaver Stadium Scoreboards To Actually Display Score

After a summer of anticipation, Beaver Stadium’s scoreboards were met with resounding disappointment. Penn State was aware of that, and at today’s Board of Trustees meeting, OPP’s Ford Stryker announced that the scoreboards would actually have a score on them moving forward.

To make room for advertising, the scoreboards didn’t display the score or any statistics during the game against Akron on Sept. 6, which caused a lot of squinting and head-craning to figure out what down it was. After a lengthy update on Penn State’s construction, Stryker presented details on the scoreboards that cost $10 million. After, Anthony Lubrano, in classic Lubrano fashion, asked whether the scoreboards are just there for advertising or if they would actually display the score.

As the Penn Stater’s Ryan Jones pointed out, Penn State was aware of how shitty the lack of a score was right after the game:

The crowd here applauded after Stryker said the score would be added. Athletics is working a new plan for how to best utilize the scoreboards overall, but at least the scoreboards can now live up their name.
