As I finish up my senior year at Penn State, there are events and things I have to do one last time. Going to the Blue-White game is one of those events!
The Blue-White game is the official kick-off to the new football season where the football team scrimmage each other in front of thousands of fans and occurs during Blue-White Weekend.
While the Blue-White game does not bring in the 107K strong as most of the games during the regular season bring, fans from all over still come to watch and celebrate the upcoming season.
However, the Blue-White is just the icing on the cake for the weekend. Blue-White Weekend is the equivalent of a family reunion.
Former Nittany Lions return for the weekend to participate in the festivities, which this year includes former football players Cincinnati Bengal Devon Still (his twitter), former kicker Sam Ficken (Ficken’s twitter) and Seattle Seahawk Jordan Hill (Hill’s twitter) signing autographs.
Fans can also look forward to the Best Man Tim Tailgate, which benefits ALS research for the Best Man Tim Foundation, and of course the the Paterno Family Beaver Stadium Run on Sunday, which benefits the Special Olympics.
This is just one of the many traditions that prospective students can look forward to when they become the newest members of the Penn State family.
Are you ready for it?
For the Glory…
