There's nothing like being at Beaver stadium for a big white out like this. The biggest one Ive ever been too was about half the stadium in all white. It was awesome !

The First White Out

The concept of the White Out was born on Sept. 18, 2004, sprouted from D'Elia's head. Penn State was playing Central Florida in the third game of what became a 4-7 season. At that point, he said, Beaver Stadium housed the quietest collection of 100,000 people. He wanted a way to get everyone energized.

This is the move that came before the entire stadium White Out. This is the move that came before deciding to move the Blue Band. This is the move that came before Zombie Nation.

This was the student-section White Out.

On that afternoon, he was on the sidelines, looking up at the fans, when he wondered aloud: What if we got them to wear the same thing? What if we could get them to act as one?
So, for the next home game in that 2004 season, the marketing department pushed the White Out.

Note to all students: Wear white shirts to Purdue.

Penn State stationed marketing people in locations on campus, telling students on their way to class about the plan. They interrupted students eating in dining halls. Did you hear about the White Out? Others lined a path to Beaver Stadium that Saturday and sent back anyone not wearing white.

Penn State lost 20-13 to Purdue. But a seed was planted.

The White Out was born.

I was happily part of that great crowd who was in all white. So I can say I made it into sports illustrated. Even though you can't see me.
