The Pennsylvania State University
When you think Penn State, you think football powerhouse. With good reason. The Nittany Lion football team has won two National Championships and owns the best winning percentage of any Big Ten school in bowl games (27-15-2). It helps that the team plays in Beaver Stadium, the second-largest stadium in the Western Hemisphere, with a capacity of more than 106,000. But, football is not the only sport Penn State student-athletes excel at. In fact, Penn State has finished in the top 25 in every NACDA/Learfield Director’s Cup final poll, recognizing overall success in college athletics. Only seven other colleges in the country have earned this distinction.

Style Facts:
Penn State has long been known for its ultra-simple football uniforms. Simple white pants and a classic blue jersey at home, and white jersey on the road, topped by a white helmet with a blue stripe. In fact, up until 2012, there weren’t even names on the back of the jerseys. This classic uniform was voted the Best Classic College Uniform in a 2014 AP poll.
