Penn State Football Schedule and Tips

Saturdays in the fall, game days, make Beaver Stadium the 4th largest city in Pennsylvania. With around 107,000 seats in the stadium you will have plenty of company to watch Penn State Football's awe-inspiring game day atmosphere. Make sure you view our checklist below to find out what you need to join "The Greatest Show in College Football." Get the most out of your Happy Valley trip! Request our visitor's guide or sign-up for our e-newsletter today. 


It is best to get your overnight accommodations months in advance of the games you plan on attending. We can help you with that by entering in the dates you want to stay in our lodging availability page.  And don't miss our travel packages & deals page too! 


The tailgating atmosphere at Beaver Stadium is unmatched. When it comes to getting parking by the stadium, smart fans will buy their passes in advance of the game. Pre-sale passes cost $20, as opposed to $60 on the day of the game. You can have passes mailed to you or go to the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office. To find out all the details visit GoPSUSports football parking page. Parking for people with disabilities and family-friendly lots are also available. 


There is one overriding reason Penn State consistently ranks among the best tailgating colleges in the country. And that reason is not the quality of our burgers or the winning record of our team. It’s the camaraderie and spirit of our fans, the happy sea of blue and white that blankets the fields surrounding Beaver Stadium on game day with its good cheer and great food. See More...


For tickets to the game visit the official Penn State Nittany Lion Ticket Center website. You can also call 1-800-NITTANY. (For confidentiality reasons the Vistors Center located across from Beaver Stadium will NOT print off tickets to the game. Please print tickets before arriving at the stadium.)

Bag Policy

To find out about what is and is not permitted into the stadium please refer to the Beaver Stadium bag policy page. Please allow yourself extra time before kickoff to properly follow these rules and pass through security measures to insure a safe venue for yourself and other fans.
