Penn State Student Section Ranked No. 1 By NCAA

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer called it a “top three atmosphere” in college football, but Penn State’s student section was recently given the outright title.

Though the NCAA tried its best to shrink the Penn State student section, it just named the crowd of 21,000 that looms over the south end zone the No. 1 student section in college football, beating out Clemson, Utah, Wisconsin, and Texas A&M.

The NCAA’s High Five video cited the dedicated fans that camp out for the week at Nittanyville to the wild environment under the lights for White Outs. From traditions like “Zombie Nation” and “Sweet Caroline” to the slow motion wave (and recently “We Dem Boyz”), the Beaver Stadium crowd, ignited by the student section, presents an environment unlike any other.

In the most recent White Out game against Meyer’s Buckeyes, the crowd registered a deafening 111 decibels. Despite the team’s recent struggles, Beaver Stadium has already had three games with an attendance greater than 100,000.
