Chris Fowler says you have to experience a Penn State whiteout in person

The countdown is on as we approach the Whiteout hour as Penn State takes on Auburn from Beaver Stadium in the marquee game for Week 3. This game marks the return of the Whiteout, which has not been held in Happy Valley since the 2019 season. Everyone is looking forward to seeing the return of the Whiteout, including the man calling all of the action this weekend for ABC, Chris Fowler.

Chris Fowler spoke to the media on Thursday and he was asked about his opinions on the return of the Whiteout. After calling last season’s home game against Ohio State in an empty Beaver Stadium, Fowler is incredibly excited to see a packed house once again all dressed in white on Saturday night.

Fowler, also keen to the history of the whiteout, reflected on

“I love the way that it kind of organically grew from a student only thing and then this the full stadium, as the story goes the fans sort of demanded it and then they made it happen in a really kind of restrained way. They didn’t want to overplay it overdo it, they wanted to keep it special and rare and once per season and reserved for a big game, and I think once you see it in person for the first time that you can really appreciate it.“

Fowler noted how well the visual translates on television, which is one of the reasons the broadcast crew is excited to be in town for the game.

It’s going to be a fun weekend, and it should be college football at its best.
