2019 Official Penn State Tailgates set to span the B1G

Penn State Alumni Association Penn State TailgatesPenn State Alumni Association CEO Paul Clifford is known for asking, "Where else would you rather be than a room full of Penn Staters?" Never does his maxim ring truer than when traveling in "enemy territory" to cheer on the Nittany Lions. Happy Valley is renowned for showcasing the tradition and pageantry of college football, but when the show shifts to another team's turf, it's comforting to keep the company of friendly faces decked out in Blue and White.

Once again in 2019, alumni and fans can cheer on Penn State football together at this season’s Penn State Tailgates, the premier pre-game events for away games, hosted by the Penn State Alumni Association. Penn State Tailgates feature the Nittany Lion, Pep Band, and Penn State Cheerleaders, along with an opportunity to hear from special guests and share in the incomparable spirit of Old State before the big game.

Each Tailgate begins three hours before scheduled kickoff, and the program starts an hour later. Registration is available for the Tailgates at five Big Ten sites: Maryland (Sept. 27), Iowa (Oct. 12), Michigan State (Oct. 26), Minnesota (Nov. 9), and Ohio State (Nov. 23). The love and loyalty of a "room full of Penn Staters" is not to be missed while gearing up for a hostile road tilt, so be sure to include the Alumni Association's Penn State Tailgates in your away game plans.
