Penn State Chicago Alums Call For White Out Conditions At Northwestern
Alumni living in the Windy City who are unable to make it back to Happy Valley for the actual White Out against Michigan will get a taste of home when they don “white pants, white shirts, white hats, white socks white shoes, white jorts” for Saturday’s game at Northwestern.
Because James Franklin has yet to officially call for an impromptu White Out this season, the Greater Chicago Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association have assumed his role as the gameday fashion police in the meantime. On Monday, the chapter’s Twitter account encouraged local alumni and fans attending the game to wear white to Ryan Field.

Though the Nittany Lions lead the all-time series 13-5, they will need as much support from their fans this weekend as possible. They dropped their last two conference tilts with the Wildcats, including an ugly 29-6 loss at home in 2014 during Homecoming Weekend.
But given the magical run Penn State is currently on, Northwestern’s dreadfully low attendance (The Wildcats had the Big Ten’s second lowest attendance last year and have failed to fill more than 70 percent of their 47,000-seat stadium this season.), and relatively cheap ticket prices, expect to see a palpably white crowd and to hear a few ‘We Are’s’ Saturday afternoon in Evanston.
