Penn State plans national anthem fly over at Beaver Stadium for Pitt game

Two fighter jets will be flying over Beaver Stadium at the end of the national anthem before Penn State kicks off against Pitt on Saturday.

Penn State announced that a pair of U.S. Air Force A-10 Warthogs will fly over the 106,000-seat stadium coming in from the south before Penn State hosts its in-state rival for the first time since 1999.

The fly over is part of game day festivities that will also include the unveiling of “2016” on the east facade of Beaver Stadium to honor last year’s Big Ten championship team. At halftime, Penn State will honor the 35th anniversary of its 1982 national championship team in an on-field ceremony.

During the game, No. 4 Penn State is looking to avenge a 42-39 defeat to the Panthers from last season. The Nittany Lions are a 21-point favorite.
