White Out Or No White Out, That Is the Question

According to The Daily Collegian, there's going to be no stadium "White Out" this year, despite it being on student tickets for Penn State's clash with Temple.

Although we at the VFA are a bit biased (because we're flying over from the UK for that game) - we'd love to see people wearing white fill the place for the Illinois homecoming game in early October - the only palpable home game is Michigan at home on Hallowe'en.

But for Paternoville VP John Tecce, the visit of the Wolverines will see at least the student section dressed in one colour (it hopes). He tweeted: "I am almost positive Michigan will be a student White Out. Those aren't announced until the week before the game but it'll happen."

Five years on from one of the greatest "unexpected seasons" in Penn State history - 2005 - it would be great to see Penn State's student body (who ex-Buckeye and now ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit reckons is the best in college football) have something to celebrate.


While we're pretty comfortable in our prediction that the Nittany Lions will run the table at home, that would also mean either a victory at Alabama or Iowa for a White Out for Michigan to be truly meaningful. Because then, my friends, victory over Michigan would set up a Horseshoe showdown with the probably-going-to-be-unbeaten-up-to-then Buckeyes. 


Anyway, here's a rather long (student) highlight of the greatest White Out in Penn State history.
