Nice catch: There are tons of great photos and videos all over the Web from Saturday’s four-overtime win against Michigan. But here’s one you probably haven’t seen: A cool time-lapse view of the sun setting over Beaver Stadium from The Citizen’s Voice.
Do ya think he’s sexy? Rod Stewart hit Happy Valley last night for a show at the BJC. Today’s Daily Collegian reports that Stewart rocked several brightly colored outfits and performed many of his biggest hits — and, according to what may be my favorite caption ever, he also “excited the older crowd by slightly pulling off his jacket.”
This is Jeopardy: Here’s hoping any Penn Staters who caught Jeopardy! last night got at least one question right. This morning, the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center (hint, hint) posted this photo to their Facebook page. The category: “State the State University.” Clever, Trebek.

When student Grant Brown began thinking about designing the T-shirt for the third Blue Out at Beaver Stadium, hosted Saturday during the Kent State game by both One Heart: Students Against the Sexual Abuse of Children and the Blue Out committee, he considered two goals: keeping a sense of continuity and connecting with the previous years’ designs.
The result: The slogan on the back of the shirt is “One team, One school, One heart, One promise.” It plays off the “We Are” chant.
Victoria Smith, the director of the Blue Out, says wearing blue to the game is the most important factor in their effort to raise awareness, but also mentioned that another huge goal is to help raise money, which is done primarily through T-shirt sales. The T-shirts are available at the Family Clothesline and the Penn State Bookstore; all proceeds from the $15 cost will go toward the Pennsylvania Coalition against Rape‘s Vision of Hope fund.
Last year, more than $74,000 was raised through T-shirt sales, canning outside Beaver Stadium, and other smaller fundraisers.
Student volunteers will be canning again Saturday morning before the Kent State game, and those who sign up and specify that they would like a student ticket can qualify for one. Which is a pretty sweet deal. They must register on blueout.org by 2 p.m. Friday to qualify. (Students can continue to volunteer to can on Saturday here.)
What’s most impressive about this effort: The Blue Out committee is made up of only four students: Director Tori Smith, Logistics Chair Emily Waschenko, Social Media Chair Sean Osgood and Brown, the merchandising chair.
