Nittany Notes: Stripe Out finally arrives

UNIVERSITY PARK – It’s going to be a big Saturday at Beaver Stadium.

It’s the Stripe Out. It’s also Senior Day.

If you’ve never seen the Stripe Out up close and personal, it certainly is something to see. It’s the third consecutive year for the Stripe Out. It’s a simple concept: Each section of the stadium is assigned an alternating color to create the stripe effect. To find out what color you should be wearing on Saturday, simply visit and type in your section from your ticket. If you are planning on getting a ticket from one of the many scalpers at the stadium, you’ll have to wear white and take a blue shirt with you or vice versa.

Penn State faced a Stripe Out crowd in Iowa City earlier this season.

Tickets are still available for the Nebraska game. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit, call 1-800-NITTANY (weekdays 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) or visit the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office. The Beaver Stadium ticket office will open Saturday at noon.

BTN Tailgate comes to Happy Valley

The “BTN Tailgate” show will originate from Penn State from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday. If you want to check the show out live, stop by Gate A at the Bryce Jordan Center. “BTN Tailgate” is hosted by Dave Revsine, with analysts Gerry DiNardo, Stanley Jackson and former Nittany Lion first-round selection Anthony “Spice” Adams. Michelle McMahon is the program’s reporter.

If you are planning on attending the “BTN Tailgate,” there are some rules you need to follow:

  • Fans can access the pit at 9 a.m. Saturday — no overnight camping;
  • Fans entering the pit will be screened by security personnel;
  • No bags, backpacks or purses are permitted;
  • No offensive, vulgar, inappropriate or solicitation signage will be allowed (i.e., no political, religious, or .com, .org, .net signage);
  • No signs or flags on a stick;
  • No food or drinks; and
  • Throwing of objects is prohibited.
  • Fans will have an opportunity to make their own signs at “BTN Tailgate.”

Although “BTN Tailgate” isn’t anywhere near the popularity of ESPN’s College Gameday, it is always interesting to see the shows film in front of a live audience.

Heisman House makes an appearance

The Nissan Heisman House Tour will return to Penn State on Saturday. It will be located within Fan Fest, which begins at 10 a.m. The Nissan Heisman House is open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The Heisman Trophy will be there, of course. If you’ve never seen it up close and personal, now if your chance. Fans can have their photo taken with the Heisman Trophy as well.

Former Penn State standout LaVar Arrington and Derrick Williams will be at the Heisman House signing autographs. Williams will be there from 12:30 to 2 p.m., while Arrington will be there from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
