2-Minute Morning

How many points is a whiteout worth, and how much will it hurt PSU not having one vs. Buckeyes?

Urban Meyer said the Beaver Stadium whiteout is worth 10 points. Is he right?

Seeing how well Penn State has played in front of whiteout crowds over the years against tough competition would indicate that, yes, the crazy atmosphere at Beaver Stadium could indeed be worth a double-digit home-field advantage.

There will be no whiteout Saturday when the Buckeyes visit. There won’t be any fans at all, in fact, aside from family members, because of the coronavirus.

Cory Giger says that’s a big blow and some really bad luck for Penn State.
