The FOS Friday Night Tailgate

Head to The Lion's Den to prepare for the Penn State football team's huge showdown with No. 3 Alabama. As usual, Goon, Brennan and company will be on hand. And we're inviting Crimson Tide fans in for the special event, too.

Prepare for No. 23 Penn State's showdown against No. 3 Alabama with former Nittany Lion All-Big Ten tackle Keith "Goon" Conlin, FOS editor Mark Brennan and others at the legendary hangout in downtown State College.

Fans, media members and former players interact and talk Penn State football and more at The Lion's Den, which has undergone extensive renovations in recent years. There are banks of TVs to watch the latest sports action and great drink specials.

The Goon with former Lion centers E.Z. Smith (left) and A.Q. Shipley.

And, in response to the great hospitality Crimson Tide fans showed Nittany Lion backers in Tuscaloosa last year, we are inviting the 'Bama faithful who make the trip to Happy Valley to stop by to talk football and enjoy a few beverages, as well.

The action kicks off at 6 p.m. and formally ends at 9 p.m., though more often than not the gang sticks around for a while after that.

We look forward to seeing you Friday at The Den!
