And we have the perfect way to prepare for the action.
Stop by The Lion's Den in downtown State College Friday evening to socialize with former Penn State offensive tackle Keith Conlin, Mark Brennan and the gang from FightOnState.com.
We start at 6 p.m. and go at least until 9 p.m. The event features former players, Penn State fans, FOS staffers and other media members.
Hosted by Conlin, the former All-Big Ten offensive lineman, the FOS Tailgate has quickly gained a foothold in Happy Valley. Among the former players who have attended this season are Ki-Jana Carter, Justin Kurpeikis, Scott Paxson, Stephen Pitts, Matt Bahr, Joe Iorio, Jim Rosecrans … well, you get the picture.
Former PSU and NFL standout Brandon Noble is slated to be on hand this week.
The Den features great food and drink specials, as well as banks of flat-screen TVs that will be carrying the latest sports action.
So be sure to stop by Friday to get in on the action.
