[Video] One Week In Nittanyville

No school does ritualistic, pre-game football hype better than Penn State. Enthused students possess enough school pride and unity that spontaneous communes pop up under the neon Nittany Lion chipmunk of Beaver Stadium for an entire week every football season.

Last year, campers camped outside Gate A the week leading up to the Ohio State game. This year, in preparation for last Saturday’s Rutgers game, Nittanyville campers pitched their tents five days before kickoff, ordered some pizzas, and started tossing footballs into trashcans in the name of tradition.

I spent the week at the base of Beaver Stadium to see two things: how Brian Roda and his friends prepped (in tents) for the stripe-out, and Penn State pride and tradition at its best. Check out our inside look at the best blue and white week-long in the world:
