The Official Penn State-Ohio State Drinking Game

We’re not sure about you guys, but we need a drink after these past few weeks of Penn State football fandom.

The No. 20 Nittany Lions are hitting the road to take on the No. 5 Buckeyes in an almost Halloween matchup on national TV. Trips to the Shoe are never easy for Penn State, and this clash should be no different.

Want to forget what happened last weekend when Penn State lost after nine overtimes? Your booze (plus our drinking game) just might do the trick.

  • If you’re reading this, take a shot. You deserve it after last week’s loss.
  • Take a sip of your drink for every costume you see at your watch party. It’s spooky szn, baby.
    • Don’t have a costume? Check our suggestions for some last-minute inspiration.
  • Take a shot for every mention of Penn State’s famous 2016 win over Ohio State. The celebration never ends.
  • Shotgun a beer for any action on offense. We’re literally that desperate.
  • Finish your drink if Sean Clifford is still limited from his injuries. Geez, maybe even put Ta’Quan Roberson in.
  • Take a shot if Penn State’s run game gets churning. It probably won’t, though.
  • Enjoy a sip for every Jordan Stout kickoff touchback. You might as well just do it now since it’s basically a given.
  • Big gulps are required for every Penn State sack and interception. Gotta give the defense some credit given the circumstances.
  • If Penn State pulls off an upset win, finish every drink in sight. A win in Columbus for the first time since 2011 deserves some a real celebration.
  • If Penn State loses, don’t stop drinking until next week’s game. Maryland! Maryland! Maryland!

As always, stay safe and drink responsibly. Happy Halloween!
