[PHOTO STORY] Students Crowd Beaver Ave. After Penn State Upsets No. 2 Ohio State

Few things excite students more than a Penn State football upset. After Saturday’s 24-21 White Out win against Ohio State, students stormed the field and Beaver Ave. downtown in what could be Penn State’s most raucous rally since Joe Paterno was fired in 2011. If you weren’t in Happy Valley this weekend, here’s what the view was like from the canyon.
