Football Highlights Vs. Military Academies To Show At Paterno Library

In preparation for Penn State’s upcoming matchup against Army this Saturday, the University Archives will host a fall football festival, dubbed “Marching Down The Field: Preserving Penn State Football Memories.”

The event will commence Friday, Oct. 2 in the Foster Auditorium at the Paterno Library from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The event will serve as a celebration of sorts, highlighting Penn State’s on-field success against military athletics. Along with displaying some of the most treasured moments in Penn State football history, the event will showcase a number of guest speakers, including Col. Guion Bluford, a United State Air Force veteran, esteemed Penn State alumnus, and the first African-American astronaut to go to space.

At the film festival, fans can relive Penn State football memories spanning decades, ranging from 1943 to 2012. 11 games against Army, Navy, and Air Force will be showcased and honored thanks to the Penn State University Sports Archives and the Special Collections Library. Seating for the event is limited, so fans who’d like to attend the event should arrive early.

Penn State fans can also relive these special football moments via MediaSite Live, which will archive the program for future viewing. Fans can view their favorite archived Penn State football memories here.

The event will be a blast, and is open to fans of all ages. Penn State urges fans to come out and get excited for Saturday’s showdown between the storied programs.
