Penn State’s 2018 White Out game is officially set, and it’s going to be against Ohio State again.
Penn State made the announcement about its 2018 White Out game Tuesday morning on Twitter. A tradition for more than a decade at Beaver Stadium, Penn State calls on fans to wear white for one home game per season, usually for the Nittany Lions’ most important home game.

Penn State also had a White Out the last time it faced Ohio State. That game ended in a huge upset for the Nittany Lions on Oct. 22, 2016, a game that turned around James Franklin’s tenure with the Nittany Lions.
The early-season matchup in 2018 between the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions could set the front-runner in the Big Ten East.
Prior to the 2016 meeting at Beaver Stadium, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he “wish they would save the White Outs for other games.”
