Your Official Penn State-Texas A&M Drinking Game

March Madness is here.

The Nittany Lions are playing in their first NCAA Tournament game since 2011. No. 10-seeded Penn State will duke it out against No. 7-seeded Texas A&M in Des Moines, Iowa.

The 9:55 p.m. ET tip-off is the perfect start time to enjoy a cold beverage for such an occasion. But, why stop at one? Celebrate Penn State dancing the right way with our official March Madness drinking game.

  • Take a shot before the game begins. Penn State hasn’t danced since 2011. You have a lot of lost time to make up for.
  • Crack a brew at tip-off. This game may take a few years off of your life.
  • Chug for three seconds for every Andrew Funk triple.
  • Take a sip for any reference of “Wynter is here.” We’re guilty of it, too.
  • Drink if you hear someone refer to Texas A&M as Texas by accident.
  • Join Jalen Pickett for every “WHOOP” celebration, and take a sip in his honor afterward.
  • BONUS: Chug for six if he gets a triple-double. (Get it, 3 x 2?)
  • Cheers with a buddy for Micah Shrewsberry. Thanks for this experience, coach.
  • Take a sip for every three-pointer. Penn State tends to make a lot of those.
  • Drink if you see an “Aggie.” Seriously, what the hell is that?
  • Finish your drink if Texas A&M gets more than two offensive rebounds on one possession.
  • Chug if you see Pat Kraft getting hype in the background. You gotta love it.
  • Take a shot if Buzz Williams gets so visibly sweaty that you can start to see it seeping through his shirt.
  • Finish your drink if an Aggies’ bench player has a career night.
  • Shotgun a beer if Andrew Funk *FINALLY* hits a game-winner at the buzzer. One of them has to fall eventually.
  • Drink a glass of water if you have class in the morning. Times are tough.
  • Finish the bottle if Penn State wins. The dance continues!
  • If Penn State loses, wrap your arm around your friends, sing the Alma Mater, and pour one out for a great season. The future is bright.

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