2015 CITIZENS BANK BUTTON PROGRAM
Continuing a 43-year tradition, Citizens Bank will create and distribute buttons featuring 12 slogans during the 2015 Nittany Lions football season. This year the buttons will feature 12 ‘best of’ slogans from the past 43 years of the contest. There is no button slogan contest for 2015.
To create a benefit for the entire community, this year’s buttons can be acquired by making a donation each week of a non-perishable food item that will go to the food bank at most Citizen Bank locations. Individuals acquiring buttons will be providing a direct benefit to the Food Bank and giving valuable assistance to those in need. Buttons are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
Fans can also purchase a complete set of 12 buttons for $20.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – After opening the 2015 season on the road, Penn State will play its next five games in the friendly confines of Beaver Stadium, starting with Buffalo Saturday in a game that will air on ESPN2.
Despite the relatively close proximity, this is just the third meeting between the two programs. Penn State traveled to Buffalo for the first meeting in 1900, but the two teams did not meet again until 2007. That meeting took place in Happy Valley, with a career day by Rodney Kinlaw leading the 12th-ranked Nittany Lions to a 45-24 victory. Read More at GoPSUSports.com

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State will face one of its most familiar foes to open its 129th year of football, opening its season at Temple for the first time since 1978.
This will be the 44th meeting between the Nittany Lions and Owls on the football field, with Penn State looking to continue its 39-game winning streak in the series that dates back to 1943. Penn State most recently defeated Temple in Beaver Stadium last season, 30-13, and traveled to Philadelphia in 2011 for a 14-10 victory.
The Blue and White enter the 2015 season opener with eight returning starters on offense and and seven from its vaunted defense which ranked amongst the best in the nation last season.
Dear Quarterback Club Applicant,
The first day of Summer is now only a week away, so it’s that time of year again to submit your membership application for the State College Quarterback Club and renew your support of the Penn State football team! As devoted Nittany Lion fans, I know you are as excited as I am for the start of another fabulous PSU Football Season.
The first Penn State Football Game of 2015 will be held at Temple on Saturday, September 5th, which is right around the corner. Our first Club Luncheon is scheduled for Wednesday, September 2nd, prior to that game and will be held in the Mount Nittany Club of Beaver Stadium.
As always, the doors open at 11:00 AM with access through Stadium Gate B. Handicap access is available through the All Sports Museum. The scrumptious Buffet Lunches from Campus Catering are offered beginning at 11:00 AM. Our weekly program follows at approximately 11:50 AM and is moderated by Steve Jones, the voice of Penn State Football.
Based on availability and class schedules, two Penn State Football players will join us for lunch and a brief discussion. Following will be highlights from various members of the Football Staff. I’m happy to report that Coach James Franklin will also be attending all of our luncheons this Fall.
Thanks to the support of our Corporate Sponsors and the hard work of your Quarterback Club Board of Directors, the weekly buffet lunches will remain the same price as last year at $20.00 per week for members and $25.00 for guests. Please remember, as in other years, guests may only attend one (1) luncheon per year as a non-member.
Also, through the generous underwriting of the Penn State Athletic Office, all of our weekly parking costs and facility rental fees for the Mount Nittany Club are being covered. In any given year, those expenses alone add up to almost $80,000. We are very grateful for this contribution and it is important for our Quarterback Club membership to understand and appreciate the continued support we receive from Penn State.
Parking passes will be provided as a benefit of your membership.
Join me as we look forward to the 2015 Season, by renewing your membership today! To join, make your check payable to: The State College Quarterback Club (SCQBC) and select one of the three membership options.
UNIVERSITY PARK — With one week until the annual Blue-White Game, Penn State football coach James Franklin likes his team’s progress.
Franklin went into the spring with a question mark at defensive end, but he no longer has questions about the position. Questions surrounding the offensive line remain, but the group has played with confidence this spring, an encouraging development for the coach. Depth at running back and tight end, and the team’s kicking game, still concern Franklin, however.
The temperatures are beginning to rise, snow is beginning to melt, and the first day of spring is upon us, which means it’s time for spring ball to finally begin. While the team isn’t losing an Allen Robinson type of threat on the offensive side of the ball, there will be some holes to patch up along the offensive line. Changes will also be coming on the defensive side, as the team looks to replace the production of Mike Hull and Adrian Amos–two of the team’s defensive stalwarts of the past few seasons.

Penn State football will bid goodbye to 17 seniors when it takes on Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl on December 27. This senior class, like the two that came before it, has been through hell and back.
It received a fitting honor yesterday night at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel during the 2014 Senior Banquet. Among the award-winners were Ryan Keiser, Anthony Zettel, and Sam Ficken.

Endorsing the recommendations made in the latest progress report by former U.S. Senator George Mitchell, the NCAA has immediately restored Penn State’s postseason eligibility and restored its scholarships to a full 85 beginning in 2015-16.
The Nittany Lions received a four-year postseason ban in 2012 as part of unprecedented and wide-ranging NCAA sanctions against the program for its role in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Some of the sanctions were reduced last September — following another positive Mitchell report — including gradual restoration of scholarships.
