Most of the time, fan-made college football hype videos are sub-par compared to school-produced clips. But every once in a while, the script is flipped. Last week, a Penn State supporter named Alec Berger put together a two-minute Nittany Lions hype video that makes use of the famous Lion King track “Circle of Life”.

“It’s different. It’s a cert of significance, a certificate of authenticity you...
From now until the end of time–or until the electricity bill gets too high–those wandering about State College, Pa. will be able to look up into the sky at night and find Beaver Stadium by the fluorescent glow of a massive Nittany Lion logo.
Penn State has installed two huge glow-in-the-dark logos atop its football stadium. Tuesday night, the light-up signs were turned on...
It’s never too early to talk Penn State football. And in mid June, I couldn’t think of a better time than now to rank the top 50 Penn State football players of all time. With “Linebacker U.” there’s a whole lot of legends to choose from at that one position alone: Shane Conlan, Courtney Brown, Jack Ham, LaVar Arrington, etc. etc. etc.
What about the running backs: Blair...
Since coming to Penn State, James Franklin has been a tireless recruiter, working hard to bring in elite talent en route to the Nittany Lions having one of the best 2015 classes in America. Part of this is because his plan to “dominate the state” doesn’t just include Pennsylvania. According to Franklin, he plans on treating New Jersey, Maryland, Washington...
