Penn State Lets Fans Vote For 2015 White Out Game

Penn State has a tough decision to make for the upcoming football season: When should the White Out game be? Many people have made their case. Some say Rugters, others say Michigan, and some think there shouldn’t be a White Out at all game next season. Heck, we even had a staff debate on when we think the game should be. It seems Penn State couldn’t make a decision either, so the athletic department is leaving it up to the fans.

This is the first time ever that fans will assist in deciding the White Out game. Fans can choose from any of the seven home games this upcoming season: Buffalo, Rutgers, San Diego State, Army, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan. Fans will also be able to vote on the t-shirt design for this year. Instead of the bookstore brand t-shirts, long-time sponsor Nike has designed two options for fans to choose from.

The designs can be seen above, and they’re sleeker and simpler than the White Out shirts of past years. Even if the shirts may look somewhat alike, it’s ultimately up to the fans to choose one. You can vote once daily through Sunday, May 10 at 11:59 p.m.

The Onward Debate on the White Out game was an interesting one, and included a poll on what game you would want as the official White Out. From the poll, it seems like Rutgers (Sept. 19)  is the favorite to be the official game for next season. We’ll see how the real vote turns out, but it will likely be a battle between Rutgers, Michigan, and Army.
