Penn State Unveils ‘Roar Tracker’ Ahead Of White Out Game

There may not be many ways to quantify a home-field advantage, but Penn State football found one ahead of its White Out clash with No. 4 Ohio State.

The team introduced its brand new “Roar Tracker” on Friday afternoon, a new counter on Beaver Stadium’s scoreboard that will tally the amount of false start penalties, delay of game calls, and timeouts forced by the Nittany Lion faithful.

Penn State has forced just one false start in its first two home games of the season against Appalachian State and Kent State. Michigan took just one delay of game penalty in last season’s White Out game. Expect those totals to go up this weekend with No. 4 Ohio State in town.

Dwayne Haskins has been one of college football’s best quarterbacks so far this season behind a solid offensive line, but never underestimate the power of a White Out night in Happy Valley.

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
