So for those of you who might not understand(or care), that meant no tailgating in the fields before or after the game. Plans had been made since last year for many, so it was a huge disappointment for friends wanting to relax together and remember old times, and catch up.

A heavy, wet snow that started accumulating Thursday and continued through Friday caused downed limbs and power outages in State College, a day before the Nittany Lions play host to the University of Minnesota. It was the earliest recorded snowfall at Penn State, beating the previous mark by three days. Tribune-Review

But the real fans took it in stride and managed to have a good time at the game, and saw the football team put up a 20-0 win.WE ARE...
Penn State!
