It’s the biggest home game of Penn State’s season. The students are definitely ready — and excited.
Nittanyville is up and running at Penn State in advance of Saturday’s 8 p.m. game on ABC against No. 2 Ohio State. This week, 667 students are camping out for the game.
Here are some views of Nittanyville.

To help kill time before Saturday, Nittanyville is holding different activities. On Tuesday, it will have a movie night with Adam Sandler’s “The Waterboy.”

Two seasons ago, Penn State played at home against Ohio State and almost knocked off what was to become the national championship winners. But the Buckeyes won in double overtime.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is well aware of how loud Penn State fans, especially the students, are for night games and White Out games. On Monday, Meyer joked that he wished Penn State saved the White Out games for other games.
