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.
Checks must be made payable to THE FOOD BANK OF THE STATE COLLEGE AREA, INC., and mailed to:

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.

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

With the scholarship restrictions placed on head coach Bill O’Brien’s team, he will need to rely heavily on what he calls “run-ons.”
This season will be the beginning of Penn State’s adventure that will rely on these walk-on players.
So let’s check out which freshman walk-ons will become household names.

That game might be coming next season. A published report said Tuesday that a deal has been finalized that will allow Penn State to open its 2014 football season in Ireland against Central Florida.
