We're Bowl Eligible, Folks!

With a 62-24 win over Purdue, Number 24 Penn State is bowl eligible! 

Overcoming a halftime tied at 17, the Nittany Lions scored 17 straight to open the third quarter and outscored Purdue 45-7 in the second half on its way to a 66-24 victory on Saturday afternoon inside Ross-Ade Stadium.

Why Our White Out Is the Best in the World

If you’ve ever been to a white out game in Beaver Stadium, then you need no explanation of what it feels like. It’s a feeling of stomach-stirring electricity, of a solidarity like nothing you’ve ever been a part of, of being totally awestruck at the sight of 110,000 people all in white, chanting “We are” with a passion like never before.

It is a had-to-be-there, one-of-a-kind experience. One that other crowds couldn’t mimic if they tried… And they’ve tried.

Here's why Happy Valley is home to the most special event in football.

Cabinda Tweets That's He's 'Freed'

Chemistry, Fan Interaction Drive Franklin’s Weekly Radio Show

James Franklin brought a special guest with him to his weekly radio show.

It’s a little past 6:30 in the evening in early September, and nearly 100 people have gathered in the downstairs of Lettermans, the revamped sports bar and restaurant that’s located in the shadow of Beaver Stadium.

Coming straight from practice and entering the room to applause, Franklin smiles. But he’s not alone. His daughter, Shola, is all revved up. She was at practice, her dad says, running 12 laps.

“That takes the guilt out of the ribs she’s about to crush,” Franklin says. 

Parade Sets Stage for Perfect Homecoming Weekend

Friday's showcase was certainly one for the ages as the crowd lined College Ave in anticipation of the annual homecoming parade.

This year's spectacle lived up to the billing with perfect crisp fall air setting the mood for an exciting evening. Led by a collection of area fire engines, State High's marching band kicked things off. Their energy and enthusiasm was matched by the intensity of Penn State ROTC members hailing from all branches of the armed forces.
