Rally In The Valley To Be Held In The HUB On Friday

If you’re upset that you’re missing out on the men’s basketball and hockey doubleheader at Madison Square Garden but feel like you need to fill your rally quota for the year, be sure to check out the Blue and White Society’s Rally in the Valley. The send-off is this Friday, January 29 at noon near the new HUB staircase.

This version of Rally in the Valley will be a bit different, given that it’s being held in January. This year’s event will help send the two traveling teams off to New York City, and will be open to the public for free. In addition, free food and various giveaways — including limited edition Rally in the Valley T-shirts — will be available for those in attendance. Traditional appearances by the Nittany Lion, the Lionettes, and the cheerleaders will also be featured.

Historically, Rally in the Valley is held during football season to pump up fans on the eve of the annual whiteout game. The event features plenty of fanfare, along with appearances from notable campus figures like James Franklin and Pat Chambers. The event simulates a gameday atmosphere with the Blue Band, Lionettes, cheerleaders, and the Nittany Lion all bringing the excitement of Beaver Stadium to Rec Hall.

Men’s basketball is set to tip off at 12 p.m. and men’s hockey will face off at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Both games will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
