LOOK: James Franklin issues challenge to Penn State fans
Earlier this week, Twitter account @CFBKings tweeted a list of the supposedly loudest stadiums in college football.
On the list, Washington’s Husky Stadium leads all crowds at 133.6 decibels. Penn State’s Beaver Stadium checked in at No. 6 (122 dB).
The tweet apparently found its way to James Franklin’s timeline and/or mentions. Being the loudest B1G crowd didn’t satisfy him. Franklin quoted the tweet and issued a challenge to Nittany Lions fans.
“I hope we take this as a personal challenge Nittany Nation, let’s not complain about this, let’s prove them wrong! 1 Game at a time,” Franklin wrote, tagging PJ Mullen in PSU’s marketing department.
There will be plenty of opportunities for marketing promotions encouraging PSU fans to make some noise. Franklin’s squad hosts B1G heavy hitters Ohio State, Michigan State, Iowa and Wisconsin this fall in Happy Valley.
