Hi, what are you looking for?

Nittany Pride

From 48-14 to 2005 whiteout, fans weigh in on favorite PSU games

There are some great choices for this question, and for many fans, your answer probably depends largely on how old you are — or how old you were at the time of these games.

What’s your all-time favorite Penn State football game?

Not necessarily the most important game ever, which is evident by the winner of my Twitter poll on the subject.

That game, the 2005 whiteout victory over a raucous crowd at Beaver Stadium, certainly has its place in PSU lore.

But is it more important than the 1983 Sugar Bowl for the Nittany Lions first national title? Of course not.

More important than the iconic 1987 Fiesta Bowl upset of Miami for PSU’s only other national title? Of course not.

Still, fans have their favorites for a reason.

Here’s a look at the major choices for all-time favorite PSU game, plus some history behind each game and fans’ thoughts on why the game was so important to them.

***1981: Penn State 48, Pitt 14
