James Franklin Calls For The White Out To End All White Outs

Lucas Oil Stadium is seven hours and 44 minutes away from Beaver Stadium to be exact. But distance is no hindrance to James Franklin because Penn State’s reach knows no bounds. Franklin wants to use that to his advantage on Saturday as he called upon fans traveling to the Big Ten Championship game to arrive wearing one color — white.

Franklin’s called on the fanbase to orchestrate a whiteout numerous times over the course of the season, but this whiteout is the most important of them all.

For the record, when we say Franklin wants fans to wear all white, he means it quite literally.

DaeSean Hamilton decided to one-up Franklin and have some fun with his coach’s rather uniform attire request.

Well, you all heard the man. If Franklin wants to bring part of Beaver Stadium to Indianapolis, then so be it! The Lions are at an advantage when playing in front of a White Out crowd, and the stakes haven’t been higher. The program is counting on its fanbase to show up in droves and send the Lions home with the Big Ten crown.
