Penn State doing its best to create White (cardboard cut)Out for Ohio State game
The atmosphere in Happy Valley for Saturday’s Top 25 matchup between No. 18 Penn State and No. 3 Ohio State is going to be a lot different. A game that would traditionally be a White Out will instead have plenty of empty seats.
Because the B1G is prohibiting fan attendance this year, there will be no White Out environment for Saturday night’s primetime showdown between the Nittany Lions and Buckeyes. But the folks in the PSU athletic department are doing the best they can within the guidelines.
Penn State will attempt to recreate a White Out environment using cardboard cutouts. The cutouts have been used at stadiums and sporting events across the country in 2020, and it will be no different in State College.
Since it would’ve been a White Out game, several of the cutouts have fans wearing their favorite white Penn State shirt. Below are some photos:
