Penn State got it done on the football field last season, finishing 11-2 and earning a 35-28 Fiesta Bowl win against Washington.
But the Nittany Lions’ younger talent extends beyond the gridiron. Look no further than the team’s dance routine at the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) on Saturday night.
With tunes such as Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) by the Backstreet Boys, Swag Surfin’ by F.L.Y. (Fast Life Yungstaz) and Super Bass by Nicki Minaj, the Penn State freshmen — as well as 5-star 2018 commit Micah Parsons — crushed their dance performance at the THON pep rally.

THON is an annual 46-hour dance marathon that takes place on the Penn State campus. All proceeds from the event go to combating pediatric cancer.
The Penn State football program has been doing its part to show support, though its performance Saturday night wasn’t enough to win the pep rally. For the second consecutive year, that honor went to the men’s gymnastics team.
