Your Official Penn State-Texas Drinking Game

The journey continues.

No. 10-seeded Penn State men’s basketball is ~dancing on~ in Des Moines, Iowa, and will compete against No. 2-seeded Texas in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, March 18.

Of course, a 7:45 p.m. ET tip-off is the ideal time to turn up and cheer on the Nittany Lions. Grab a six-pack and follow along with Onward State’s official Penn State-Texas drinking game.

  • Crack open a cold one to celebrate Penn State’s first NCAA Tournament victory in 22 years. Chug if you weren’t even alive yet.
  • Take a long swig at tip-off. There’s a long road ahead tonight.
  • Drink if Kebba Njie scores Penn State’s first points.
  • Take a sip if you know which city in Texas the Longhorns are from.
  • Drink for three when Andrew Funk sinks his first triple.
  • Drink if the announcers say Penn State is ~hot.~
  • Chug for 10 if Sir’Jabari Rice hits double digits in the first half.
  • If Marcus Carr is guarding Jalen Pickett, take a sip. It might be a long night for the All-American.
  • Drink if the Longhorns are winning the turnover battle at the half.
  • Crack open another bev if the Nittany Lions are leading at the end of the half.
  • Buckle up, folks. Shots all around if Texas is winning instead.
  • If you see a Texas fan flash the “Hook ’em Horns” hand gesture, take a sip.
  • Finish your drink if a Penn State player displays the “Horns Down” gesture.
  • Drink for Kanye Clary’s first points of the night. Let Yeezy cook.
  • Take a sip if the announcers bring up Micah Shrewsberry’s looming contract extension. Then, say a prayer.
  • Crack open a cold one if Pat Kraft teleported from Tulsa to Des Moines in one day.
  • Crack another if President Neeli Bendapudi is in attendance.
  • Drink if you see a cowboy hat.
  • Finish your drink if the Nittany Lions’ rebound game is tough to watch.
  • Take a sip every time you check how Penn State wrestling is doing in the National Championships finals. Basketball School. Wrestling School. Everything School.
  • Drink if Seth Lundy hits double digits.
  • Take two shots if Texas has to foul Penn State late.
  • Crack open a celebratory beer if the Nittany Lions move on. See y’all at Beaver Canyon.
  • Sip on a final drink if the Longhorns finish Penn State. It’s been a good run.

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