Penn State Announces 'White Out' During Ohio State's October 25th Visit

It's an image Ohio State fans likely remember: a 14-10 defeat to Penn State in 2005 while all their fans wore white shirts.

Other teams — including Ohio State — have since gotten in on the act, but Penn State is still more than ready to do it again.

And they will do it again, against Ohio State during the Buckeyes' October 25th visit, according to OnwardState.com.

The edge might only be aesthetics, but after Ohio State's 63-14 dismantling of Penn State last year, the Nittany Lions could need every edge they can get.

Haven't they had a 'White Out' every game in Slappy Valley since? And haven't they lost every single time?

I hope you're handing out tissues as part of this, cause there will be some tears shed on that field, James Franklin.  Mark my words.

Ok...so...while wearing all white they will be able to witness yet another beat down by the Bucks. They can try any color scheme they'd like but the results will not change.

I think the takeaway here should be that it's something to create excitement for a game against our team. That would be a good thing.

They would also like to white out about 18 of their last 20 seasons.

No shock. It's a night game, and they tend to wear white for anybody at night. Hell, UCF last year got similar results.

I thought maybe this year they were going to go with a "zero out" wherein they keep their side of the scoreboard saying zero for the entire game. It is good to set reachable goals.

I remember kicking their effing asses every time we've gone there since.

2007:  OSU 37, PSU 17 - think this was a whiteout too, don't remember

2009:  OSU 24, PSU 7

2012:  OSU 35, PSU 23, and it wasn't that close, really

Don't forget that we beat you guys in front of a then record crowd in 2008, and that we've beaten Braxton Miller before. We Are PSU and We will bring it on Oct. 25. You'll see PSU is rising, and were just starting.

Your offense is a disaster waiting to happen. You have Hackenberg, I'll give you that. You have no one to block, no one to run, and you lost your best receivers. The Silver Bullets terrorized Penn State last year, it will be worse this year.

That 2008 PSU team was great and would've played in the national title game if they didn't blow it vs Iowa. The current PSU team is absolutely terrible compared to them.

and that we've beaten Braxton Miller before.

When he was a freshman, he's now a senior. That was the year that Ohio State went 6-7 and you only won by six, not much to be proud of. Meyer wasn't even our coach back then.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if you guys beat us next year mainly because of Hackenberg's Heisman performance against Ohio State's greatest pass defense in history last season.

So we should worry because Penn State eeked out a win over Miller as a Freshman? How should you feel about OSU's win over Hackenberg last year? You know, the one where Penn State could have scored 5 more touchdowns and still lost by double digits.

Penn State may be rising, but OSU is here. So what is your point?

Thank you for telling us who "We" are. I hadn't heard that before.

At least its better than having to sit through a Miami Heat game when they try this. Hard to have a "white out" when fans dont show up until the second quarter and your seats are red!

Here is what I don't get. You guys think we are so irrelevant but since franklin was hired you have had far more articles and forum topics about psu than anybody else. Why? If we are really the equivalent of rutgers why do you care? You probably will win. You should. Still be a fun game.

It will be a fun game to watch- I think this game is circled on both coach's calendar.

New coach from the sec coming next door and winning some early recruiting battles...not Michigan st 'on the calendar' but if there's a chance to humiliate PSU, it will get ugly
