If you'd been watching football this year, then you'd seen Georgia Tech (Thursday night), NC State (Thursday night), Michigan ('Maize Out') try and copy the Penn State feeling by getting all of their fans to wear the same colour.
Sorry guys. But there's NOTHING like the Penn State White Out.
It's an incredible experience. Although the VFA currently resides in the UK, we've been part of 'White Outs' in 2005 (Ohio State, Wisconsin) and 2006 (Michigan). We've also worn white in the UK while listening to the Ohio State game on sports radio (2007), and watching the Illinois (2008), Michigan (2008) and Michigan State games (2008).
Only recently have Penn State brought in the 'Stadium White Out' - and it usually follows loss to that team the year before. Notre Dame, Illinois and Iowa all come into Happy Valley having beaten the Nittany Lions the year before, and so far, their record in the return 'leg' in 0-2. Here's hoping that it's 0-3 on Saturday night.
Ohio State (2005)
So loud that it made Richter Scales. It was the battle for the Big Ten title, and the noise was incredible.
The Stadium White-Out (2007)
Notre Dame came to town, wearing green. The stadium was wearing white. It was Jimmy Clausen's first road game, and one he'll never forget - but never really want to talk about again.
Then there was Illinois (starring the Lion)....
On Saturday, it's Iowa time
