While Penn State is not hosting its annual “White Out” game until Oct. 21 for Jim Harbaugh and Michigan, Nittany Lions students will be clad in the same color on Saturday. Penn State is having a student section White Out for the Pitt game.

Saturday’s game will be the first time Pitt has played at Penn State since the 1999 season when the No. 2 Nittany Lions edged the Panthers, 20-17. It was also Penn State’s last win over Pitt.
The Panthers have won their last two meetings over the Nittany Lions, including a 42-39 victory last year in Pittsburgh. Penn State fans are ready to start a new winning streak Saturday.
