Best Penn State-Themed Borg Names

It’s officially spring, and that means daylongs are on the horizon.

In the past few months, borgs have become a popular drink among college students. Borg, which is short for ~black out rage gallon~ is a gallon-sized container filled with vodka, water, a flavor enhancer (like MiO), and Liquid I.V.

Borgs typically have a play-on-words name, which is labeled in permanent marker. We’ve got you covered with Penn State-themed borg names ahead of your next daylong.

Meatborg Monday

Everyone knows McLanahan’s Meatball Monday is the best deal in State College. When you’re stumbling around on a Saturday afternoon, show the world your heart lies. In this case, your heart is on your borg, not your sleeve.

// Dear Old Borg, Dear Old Borg //

Nothing screams school spirit like repping Penn State’s most iconic building, Old Main, front and center on your gallon.

Saquon Borgley

This one goes out to one of Penn State football’s very best: Saquon Barkley. If you use this name on your borg, you might be able to get your gallon down as fast as he gets down the field.

Rose Borg

No, we’re never going to stop reliving the Rose Bowl. Penn State football beat the Utah Utes 35-21 in this year’s Rose Bowl. It was truly the perfect ending to the season and Sean Clifford’s career.

BRGR, but BOGR (ha, get it?).

BRGR is a burger restaurant downtown, and we think it deserves some love.

Borg Jordan Center

Show off your borg with the home of Micah Shrewsberry Penn State hoops after one of its best seasons in program history.

So many great memories have formed in the Bryce Jordan Center, and maybe it holds a special place in your heart.

Neeli Bendaborgi

Penn State President Neeli Bendapudi deserves a borg, too. There won’t be another person at the party with a borg that pays respect to The Neelsters. You could even tag team with a friend who names their borg “Eric Borgen” after former Penn State President Eric Barron.

Trace McBorgley

Aidan Conrad | Onward State

Here’s another ode to a Penn State football legend: Trace McSorley. Unlike McSorley, please do not throw your borg on a dime.

They always ask “where’s the CATA bus?” but never “how’s the CATA bus?”. It’s time to give our bus system a token of appreciation.
