Your Official Penn State-Maryland Drinking Game

We’re nearing the end, folks.

Penn State will play its penultimate home game this Saturday, November 12, against the Maryland Terrapins. With just three games left in the season, the Nittany Lions may still find themselves in a New Year’s Six Bowl after a wild slate of college football action last weekend. There’s still a lot to play for.

It should be a light weekend for Penn State as it boasts a 41-3-1 all-time record against the Terrapins. That’s right, just three losses. But, two of them have come under James Franklin.

Regardless, it should be a great day to watch football, and a bad day to be a beer. Here is this week’s official football drinking game to get you going.

  • Crack a cold one to get the day started. This may be the last warm game day of the year.
  • Take a nice shot of relief to be tailgating before the game for once. It’s about damn time.
    • Take another shot if Michigan State gets announced as a home game.
  • Take a sip if Maryland players refuse to shake hands before the game.
    • Bonus: Keep chugging during the boos.
  • Finish your drink if Sean Clifford breaks the Penn State career passing record. The Big Red Dog is just 16 yards away…
  • Take a shot if he throws an interception right after it.
  • Chug for six seconds for every rushing touchdown.
  • Take a sip if you or your buddies didn’t know Tua Tagovailoa’s brother was on the Terrapins.
  • Take a sip any time Limitless NIL is mentioned.
  • Crack a new one if Drew Allar starts the second half. F U T U R E.
  • Take a sip every time the announcers say, “next year?” when they see Kaytron Allen, Nick Singleton, and Allar.
  • Take a sip for the “I love turtles” dude. Just because.
  • Chug for three seconds every time someone says “turtle soup.”
  • Finish your drink if this game is tied going into the fourth quarter. That could be a disaster.
  • Take a sip if Manny Diaz’s defense comes up big late in the game. It’s been turning up, we can’t lie.
    • Bonus: Take a shot if it’s a Joey Porter interception. It’s got to happen!
  • Crack a new one if Penn State comes out victorious. Why not?
  • Drown your sorrows with the Fireball shooters back at your tailgate if Penn State loses.
    • Maybe some water after that, too. Please.

As always, have fun, stay safe, and drink responsibly.
