Penn State in Pictures

A little late to the party with the photos, but here they are. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the last time for the Iowa Hawkeyes football team to travel to State College, PA as the Nittany Lions will be off the schedule for a few years.

On the right are the many uniforms and equipment laid out for the team prior to Saturday's game. The Beaver Stadium locker room is divided into two sections for offense and defense.
 The Penn State stadium has been on television often over the years attracting many famous men and women to the broadcast booth. A plaque outside the booth has every name that has worked a game there.
 And this was Urban Meyer's first trip to the Beaver Stadium broadcast booth. Here is adds his name to the board that also includes Keith Jackson, Brent Musberger, and Chris Schenkel.
And the different logos outside the booth may be an exaggeration of the different networks that have broadcast a home Nittany Lion game, but Penn State has been on television often throughout the years.
 At Michigan last year we saw the Block "M" on many of the pastries and treats made for the media. Penn State held their own with Lion Paw Prints on the cupcakes.
 Son of Penn State Football coach Joe Paterno is Jay who is on the left speaking with a member of the Penn State Sports Information staff.
 A well-known nickname for Penn State football is "Linebacker U." Over the years the Nittany Lions have turned out some of the greatest linebackers in the history of college football.
And it was a beautiful afternoon in Central PA. The sun sets on Beaver Stadium and the suites that sit atop the east stands. After looking at the suite structure I wondered if they were to look similar to the Keystone emblem that represents the state.
