From now till a week into January, hundreds of thousands of college football fans will be in the stands or glued to their television screens every Saturday (and some Thursdays, and Sundays, and so on.) College sports are so unique – cities and towns that may not have a pro sports club have hometown teams to love.
Our Nittany Lions open the season tomorrow against the Penguins of Youngstown State, and while tailgating and parties mean a lot of adult-centered fun, tons of kids and families enjoy the festivities, like the family-centric Blue-White scrimmage game in the spring.
Of course, not just football starts up right now at colleges around the nation, but dozens of other fall sports! Best of all, tickets are generally inexpensive or admission is free for many college sporting events. It’s such a great way for kids to see sports in action and appreciate what is available locally!
So, whether your team’s stadium holds 1,000 or 100,000, it’s time to cheer!
