We Are Loud: Fans At The White Out Register 111 Decibels
According to Penn Live’s Joe Hermitt, the crowd at Beaver Stadium registered at 111 decibels at the White Out game against Ohio State on Saturday. Eleven Warriors reported that’s only five decibels off a thunderclap, and 14 decibels short of when people will feel pain in their ears. For comparison, the noise at last year’s overtime victory against the Wolverines registered at 103 decibels.
At his post game press conference, Ohio State Head Coach Urban Meyer said, “That was I’d say that was a top five atmosphere. I got it in the top three now after that one. That was incredible. That’s a credit to their student body and their fans. They did a great job.”
Urban Meyer on #PennState crowd: “I actually pulled my ear (phone) off a couple of times to hear how loud it was. It can’t get louder.”
