Here are Penn State’s game themes for the 2021 football season (including the white out game)

·2 min read

College football is returning soon, and Penn State is more than ready to welcome fans back to Beaver Stadium this fall. After not allowing fans in the stands at Beaver Stadium last season due to the Big Ten’s approach to a modified season schedule and regulations during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Penn State is bringing back their themes for every home game to help generate enthusiasm for the return of Nittany Lion football in Happy Valley.

Penn State announced the themes for all home games for the 2021 season, which will see the return of 100% capacity crowds inside Beaver Stadium this season. Here’s a look at each theme for Penn State’s home schedule this fall.
