Stripe Out Highlights 2015 Penn State Football Promotions

As we gear up for another season of Penn State football, Penn State Athletics released the themes for the home games in Beaver Stadium this year. Many themes are old favorites, some are new, and others are jam-packed into one game. This season’s promotions will include a White Out, appreciation days, reunions, and even a Stripe Out.

Sept. 12, Buffalo: Community Heroes Day; 1959 Liberty Bowl Reunion; Youth Football, Cheer, and Dance

All community heroes — police, fire, EMT — are eligible for a special ticket package that includes a pre-game tailgate at Medlar Field. Fans will also be joined by the 1959 Liberty Bowl Team for a special reunion 56 years after their win against Bear Bryant and the Alabama Crimson Tide. The game will also be Youth Football, Cheer, and Dance Day.

Sept. 19, Rutgers: Stripe Out; Medical Employees Appreciation Night, Penn State Parents Family Reunion

This year will be the inaugural Stripe Out. Each section will be coordinated in either all blue or white clothing to create a stripe effect in Beaver Stadium. More info about the Stripe Out will be released in August. Along with the Stripe Out, the game against Rutgers will be a student section White Out.

Oct. 3, Army: Military Appreciation Day; Seats for Service members

Penn State is continuing the trend of honoring the men and women who bravely served our country by dedicating a game to them; appropriately when the Nittany Lions take the field against Army West Point. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets to be donated to military members and their families through the “Seats for Service members” program. ROTC elite, active duty, Wounded Warriors, and veterans will be honored at halftime.

Oct. 10, Indiana (Homecoming): Varsity “S” Day; Celebrate Agriculture

The Alumni Blue Band will be featured at halftime along with the crowning of the 2015-16 Homecoming Kind and Queen. The homecoming parade will be held on campus and downtown State College on the Friday night before the game.

 Oct. 31, Illinois: All-U Day; THON Game; Faculty and Staff Day; Scouts Day

Along with the involvement of student representatives during halftime, faculty and staff from each Commonwealth campus are invited to attend the game at a discounted rate. Scouts Day will include Boy Scout and Girl Scout organizations, who can purchase special ticket packages at a reduced rate.

November 21, Michigan: White Out, Senior Day

After nearly a month of away games, the last home game of the season will be the infamous White Out. The fan-voted White Out is the first of its kind and will also fall on Senior Day. During Senior Day, Nittany Lions seniors will be introduced at halftime.
