Citizens Bank releases 2016 Penn State button slogans, including ‘Fail to Pitt’
In another sign of the approaching football season, Citizens Bank has revealed the button slogans for this year’s Penn State games.
The return of the Pitt series made for a new twist this year. There are some pop culture shoutouts this season as well, including one Game of Thrones fans will appreciate for the Michigan game.
As shared on wearecentralpa.com, the buttons are:
Kent State: “Gone in a Flash”
Pittsburgh: “Fail to Pitt”
Temple: “Lions Don’t Give a Hoot”
Michigan: “Lions Prefer Direwolves”
Minnesota: “Au Revoir Gopher”
Maryland: “No Fearing These Turtles”
Ohio State: “Lions have Change for a Buck”
Purdue: “Train Heist”
Iowa: “All Hawk No Action”
Indiana: “Stick to the Hoops”
Rutgers: “Good Knight Sleep Tight”
Michigan State: “This Isn’t Sparta”
According to wearecentralpa.com, the button release starts Aug. 31. Each week, that week’s button will be available starting Wednesday at Citizens Bank locations. Beginning in late August, fans can also buy the complete set of 12 for $20. Fans can also get buttons by making a donation of a non-perishable food item that will go to area food banks. There will be collection bins at Citizens Bank locations.
“We are pleased to once again kick off the Citizens Bank button program, a longstanding tradition,” Daniel K. Fitzpatrick, President of Citizens Bank in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, told wearecentralpa.com. “This year’s buttons showcase the creativity and pride that our colleagues share along with fans and alumni all across Central Pennsylvania.”
