Penn State Football To Host White Out Against Iowa September 23

Are you ready for the “greatest show in college sports?”

The 2023 Penn State White Out is set for 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 23, against Iowa, the team announced Monday. The game will be broadcast on CBS.

Penn State didn’t challenge Iowa in its 2022 campaign but most recently fell to the Hawkeyes 23-20 in October 2021 largely as a result of an injured Sean Clifford.

This will mark Iowa’s second White Out appearance and its first since 2009. Penn State lost 21-10 to the Hawkeyes in a rainy, September matchup at Beaver Stadium in its last White Out contest with Iowa. The Nittany Lions moved on to an 11-2 season following their loss to Iowa and triumphed over LSU in the 2010 Capital One Bowl.

Since Iowa’s White Out debut in 2009, the Hawkeyes are 3-6 against Penn State beginning in 2010. Their wins against the blue and white came in 2010, 2020, and 2021, however, the Nittany Lions won six-straight matchups between 2011 and 2019. Overall, Penn State has a 7-8 record at home against Iowa and a 9-8 record in White Out games.

White Outs are traditionally held at primetime kickoff slots, and Penn State’s outing against West Virginia was the only home game that’s confirmed a 7:30 p.m. showing until Monday. This year, CBS earned the rights to the White Out broadcast and it will be televised at 8 p.m.

The Nittany Lions’ most frequent opponents in the White Out are Michigan and Ohio State, and the conference foes have played in the White Out a combined eight times since 2004. Penn State’s most recent White Out adversaries have been Auburn, Minnesota, and now Iowa since 2021.

Along with the announcement of the White Out, Penn State announced its other home theme games Monday. Beaver Stadium will host its Helmet Stripe game against West Virginia on September 2, THON Spirit Day against Delaware on September 9, Homecoming against UMASS on October 14, Military Appreciation game against Indiana on October 28, Stripe Out against Michigan on November 11, and All-U Day and Senior Day against Rutgers on November 18.
