Many have tried to emulate it but no one comes close to duplicating it. Plus, we owe some payback Sat. night. ;)


Here is what the players describe as a White-Out, or rather don't explain:

We should win this game. It will be hard fought but we are at home with an electric crowd. I hope we don't have a few 3 and out to start the game. I want to take the ball down the field and score first. Our defense is playing lights out and this offensive MU squad is weak. I have no clue how Saquon will do because teams are keying in on him. i think he could have a huge game because MU might think they don't have to key in on him as much. We need to get Gesicki involved early and often. MU is a man team who blitzes. Trace must get the ball out early. I could see MU sit back a bit more and try to knock down Trace's passes. I love that GameDay is heading up there and the crowd is going to be insane from start to finish. Winning the next 3 games gets us into the playoff. But now we worry about Michigan!!
Prognostication:
Good Guys- 24
Bad guys- 13

Side note, we have to head up to McKean county tomorrow night and come home Saturday. I am completely avoiding PSU and heading up 11/15. It is going to be an absolute zoo up there!

I want us to block five fg attempts against that sorry, tree-climbing POS, I want the offense to amass 500 on the ground and 500 in the air and I want the defense to limit Michigan to -85 total yards.
If at first you don't succeed, give up. There is no hope for you.

Going to game! I don't have white PSU gear. Will they provide t shirts or should I suck it up and go buy a jersey? My first white out!!!

I don't think they provide white shirts, but am not positive. I would think, since this is your first White Out, you should get something white because you don't want to be that guy who isn't decked out. Of course, if you ask CJF, he would suggest al white from hat to shoes!

I assume there is an official shirt that can be purchased at the stores in town, or maybe a white hoodie since it's a night game in Happy Valley. Have fun!

I believe the "official" White-Out shirt can be purchased at the Penn State Bookstore on campus next to the HUB.

However, I would guarantee any store downtown selling Penn State merchandise, including Lions Pride, Student Book Store, Family Clothesline, Rapid Transit, and McLanahan's, will have a bunch of white shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys, and jackets for sale.

This thread is awesome. Pee troughs, Buddha, the Orioles, McKean County....what next, a Trump tweet?

In transit, I will miss the first half - going to walk in to my empty house, hit the DVR and soak in the white out from the beginning. I’m a bit worried about Michigan’s D and think our ST’s need to be at the top of their games to give us the win (FGs, FGs, FGs). Also, absolutely no TOs in our own territory.

We git ‘er done, 16-13.

Just a thought of your here to there - is there a sports bar at the "here" you can watch the 1st half - do the transit to there during halftime and finish game at your house? This feels like "don't want to miss" moment.

I'm planning on a sports bar within walking distance to my place.
