Penn State Voted Nation’s No. 5 Tailgate School

USA Today’s College Football Fan Index recently asked for votes on the nation’s best tailgating school, and to no one’s surprise, Penn State came in strong at fifth-best in the country.

Penn State was the highest ranked of four Big Ten teams on the tailgate list, beating Wisconsin (No. 7), Iowa (No. 8), and Nebraska (No. 10). Rutgers was credited in an accompanying video as hosting the first-ever tailgate, but shockingly, our Neighbors to the East didn’t make the list. Penn State rounded out the top five, behind four SEC schools in Tennessee, Florida, Ole Miss, and LSU, which brought home top honors.

USA Today gave attention to the fact that the RV lot opens at 6 p.m. on the Thursday before game day. In addition to the RV lot, Penn State has some of the largest fields for tailgating in the nation, one of the most passionate fanbases, and, of course, Nittanyville.

Different rankings are generated weekly and are based off of fan voting in USA Today’s index. Penn State also received honorable mentions for best uniforms, team colors, helmets, and fight song. Additionally, Beaver Stadium was ranked as college football’s seventh-best stadium.

Here’s to hoping this weekend’s pregame for the primetime whiteout matchup against Ohio State lives up to expectations!
