[Photo Story] Penn State vs. Northwestern

Still drying out? We are, too.

In case you missed it, Penn State battled through the return of Big Ten football weather (read: downpours, wind, and plunging temperatures) on Saturday to take down Northwestern 17-7. While it wasn’t pretty, the Nittany Lions got the job done.

Our photographers were on the field to capture all of the scenes from a soaking wet Beaver Stadium.

The day started out well enough. Although it was a bit chilly, fans still came out in droves to cheer on the Nittany Lions as they entered the stadium.

The fair weather, however, would not last very long.

A few raindrops began to fall during warmups. That didn’t deter most fans, who came bundled in layers and rain gear.

By kickoff, the stray raindrops gave way to a full-fledged downpour.

The Nittany Lions overcame their fumble trouble to squeak out a win.

CJF was clearly in a good mood after that weather.
