‘Mo Bamba’ The Latest Post-Penn State vs. Iowa Dance Hype Video
When Penn State and Iowa cross paths, you’re usually guaranteed a few things that make the Big Ten great: smash-mouth football, exciting finishes, and big defensive stands.
You might as well also include a memorable post-game dance party hype video on that list.
After the Nittany Lions held on for their first win of the season against a ranked opponent Saturday, the team broke out dancing to Sheck Wes’ “Mo Bamba.” Some players even jumped into the stands to celebrate with fans before singing the alma mater.
The celebration was a welcome catharsis of pent-up emotion and joy following a pair of disappointing losses at Beaver Stadium and a sloppy game without much engagement from the crowd.
“Mo Bamba” is the latest song to take the Penn State football fanbase by storm, following in the
footsteps dance steps of two other notable post-Iowa celebrations.
Amani Oruwariye posted a video of the team doing the Mannequin Challenge while dancing to Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” in the midst of its magical run to a Big Ten championship in 2016.
Even two years later, the excitement in the locker room of a team climbing back to the top of the Big Ten out of nowhere is pretty moving.
The team celebrated its walk-off win against the Hawkeyes last year with another memorable locker room dance party, this time documented by Marcus Allen. In Iowa’s infamous pink visitors locker room, the team got down to a remix of Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” in a video starring Allen and Trace McSorley.
Cardi B herself even showed the Nittany Lions some love, quote-tweeting Allen’s video.
