More Of Our Favorite Beaver Stadium Fan Cutouts

For the past few weeks, we’ve been asking Penn State to release more photos of fans’ cardboard cutouts in Beaver Stadium. Finally, it delivered.

Last week, Penn State Athletics released more than 100 high-definition photos of fan cutouts from the season so far, encouraging folks at home to scour the stands to find themselves and post ’em online.

We’ve added to our list of notable cutouts with some of our favorites from these new photos.

We’ve already picked out a few of our favorite cutouts. But with hundreds more at our disposal, we scoured the stands to find a few more amusing submissions. Here are some of our favorites:

Le Chef

Tailgating isn’t happening this season, but getting a cutout of the tailgate chef is about as close as you could get. This gourmet chef is pulling out all the stops to keep the other cutouts happily fed during the games. It might even be better than a piping-hot chicken basket.

Mask Up Or Pack Up Dog

Tell the Nittany Lion to step aside. This dog is coming to take its job! This good boy is setting a perfect example for the folks at home by reminding them to mask up.

Snapping Turtle

Sure, there are lots of dogs and cats as cutouts right now, but one pet that unexpectedly popped up was this very expressive turtle. It’s definitely a mood at this point in the semester. Hopefully, it’s doing okay.

Nittany Lions Snowman

The creativity for this cutout is on point. A snow Nittany Lion complete with a jersey is really pulling out all the stops. Even though it is a little bit creepy, it fits right in as we start getting cooler weather in Happy Valley.


Of course, a Penn State bobblehead needed to make an appearance at the football games. Even though the head can’t bobble when it’s made of cardboard, it still bobbles in spirit and brings lots of cheer to the fan section this year.

Silly Snap Filter

Surprisingly there weren’t a lot of funny Snapchat filters in the mix. This one deserves some props for portraying every emotion that Penn State fans go through over the course of a game. A little hope, a lot of confusion, momentary excitement, and then the realization that there’s no coming back from that.

Here Comes the Bride

Now this is some pretty good White Out attire. This beautiful bride basically had the most exciting wedding ever in the massive stadium. That’s Penn State-themed wedding goals right here.

Screaming Kid

The amount of screaming kids as cardboard cutouts is honestly kind of concerning. They all look more terrified than excited. Maybe it’s because of how scary this season is going for the Nittany Lions so far. Yeah, that’s probably it.  

Buddy the Elf

Now that we’ve officially passed Spooky Season, some people are getting into the holiday spirit. Buddy the Elf made a pit stop in Happy Valley to cheer on the Nittany Lions. Hopefully, she can get a big bowl of spaghetti and maple syrup at the concession stands.

Confused Cat

Last but not least is this adorably confused fat cat, which is probably pondering whether or not Penn State will actually win a game this year. Nothing could ever beat this cat. It’s just too cute.
