Penn State Football Lets Fans Vote For 2016 White Out Shirt

“Ready, Set, Roar,” Penn State football fans. Penn State is giving fans the opportunity to vote for the 2016 White Out shirt designed by Nike for the second year in a row.

Penn State and Nike released two White Out shirt designs on Monday for fans to vote on which is their favorite…er, uh, which one they think is less of an eyesore. Fans can recall voting for last year’s winner: an interesting metallic design that really turned out to be silver glitter.

This year, fans can choose between shirt 1, a borderline plain white T-shirt with words that are barely visible, and shirt 2, which features a take on a white shirt pinned with a blue and white marathon racing bib. Anyone can vote on the shirt design: there is really no talent required. 

Both shirts include the mantra, “Ready, Set, Roar,” which has been a Penn State Football tradition since…apparently 8:06 this morning. “We Are Penn State,” would’ve been a good choice, but sure, why not use a saying that has really never been uttered in Penn State football history?

Since Nike is Penn State’s athletic sponsor and the designer of the White Out shirts, expect a high price for the shirt, likely around $30-35, as well as the feeling like you have to wear the White Out shirt to every game just to get your money’s worth.

Fans can vote for their favorite White Out shirt here until April 15 at 11:59 p.m.
