The Official Penn State-Maryland Drinking Game

Another home game for the Nittany Lions means another sight of an empty Beaver Stadium with cardboard cutouts. This time, Penn State will host the Maryland Terrapins, attempting to win its first game of the season.

After a sad but expected loss to Ohio State, the Nittany Lions fell out of this week’s AP Top 25 Poll and are currently last in the Big Ten East standings. Although Penn State leads Maryland 40–2–1 in the two programs’ all-time series, there’s still room for improvement from the Nittany Lions.

Following two straight losses, it’s hard to stay optimistic about this weekend, but that’s what drinking is for! So sit back, relax, and responsibly enjoy this week’s official drinking game.

  • Take a sip every time they show how Penn State fans took over Maryland’s student section last year. (Maryland’s Super Bowl loss.)
  • Take a shot at every mention of Trace McSorley playing for Maryland’s own Baltimore Ravens now. We still love you, Trace.
  • Finish your drink for every Jahan Dotson catch as a tribute to his one-handed touchdown last weekend.
  • Take a sip of your drink for every interception thrown. Sigh.
  • Take a shot for every positive gain from the running back corps. We really need some action here.
  • Shotgun your beer every time the broadcast mentions that Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa is the brother of Tua Tagovailoa.
  • Celebrate and finish your drink if Penn State is now 1-2.
  • Finish every drink in sight if Penn State is now 0-3. Don’t stop drinking until next week, too.

As always, enjoy the game, drink responsibly, and stay safe!
