Penn State football season is back and opened the season at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The Nittany Lions did not fair well through the hot and humid weather, an early game injury, and quarterback Christian Hackenberg getting sacked 10 times. For the first time in several decades the Temple Owls got the win over Penn State.
Penn State football announced today they are going back to tradition, and the players will not have names on their jerseys this season. The team added names to their jerseys after the Sandusky scandal shook the program, but now it’s time to go back to play for the name on the front. After the announcement they took to town greeting fans of all ages and handing out posters for the quickly approaching season.
It was suns out guns out for the Penn State football team as they competed against each other in the annual Lift for Life. All the money the team raised goes to help kidney cancer research. Events included sled pulls, farmers hold, dead lifts, an obstacle course and more. Several rowdy rounds of tug-o-war wrapped up the event.
