Alumni Association To Host Fiesta Bowl Pep Rally Friday

The Penn State Alumni Association will sponsor an official Penn State pep rally before the Fiesta Bowl starting at 3 p.m. local time Friday at Scottsdale Stadium. It’s free and open to all Penn Staters making the trek to Arizona for Saturday’s matchup against Washington.

Pack your sunnies and sandals, because Accuweather is forecasting a “pleasantly warm” day Friday with “plenty of sunshine” — a dream compared to this week’s sub-freezing Pennsylvania conditions.

The pep rally opens at 2 p.m. local time and the program will start an hour later, featuring the Penn State Blue Band, cheerleaders, Lionettes, the Nittany Lion, and “a number of special guests.” Concession stands will be open for food and beverage purchases.

If you’re trying to ‘gram your way through AZ, you’re in luck! The pep rally even has an official hashtag: #PSUPepRally.

Fans should enter the stadium through Gate F for the rally, which is on the Drinkwater Boulevard side of the stadium. Free parking for three hours is available at the Civic Center Liberty Parking Garage on Drinkwater Boulevard, and the Alumni Association suggests parking on the first or third level of the garage.
