Are You Ready for Some FOOTBALL?
Its that time of year when we start getting excited for football season. Pennsylvania is home to two major league football teams. The Philadephia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Eagles will take home field advantage at Lincoln Financial Field when they battle the Buffalo Bills on August 17 for their first preseason game and the New York Giants on September 24 for the first regular season game.
Cheer on the Pittsburgh Steelers and show your black and gold pride with your terrible towel in hand at Heinz Field. First home pre-season game is August 20 against the Atlanta Falcons and the first home game against the Minnesota Vikings is September 17.
Pittsburgh is a football town. Heinz Field is also home to the University of Pittsburgh Panthers or commonly called the Pitt Panthers. Pittsburgh’s annual rivalry with Penn State will be held on September 9, 2017 at University Park. Pitt’s first home game is on September 2 against Youngstown State.
Roar for the Penn State Nittany Lions and discover why thousands of people flood the campus each home game. See tailgating taken to a new level. And win or lose, experience the lighthearted spirit that gives Happy Valley its name. Home games are played at Beaver Stadium located at University Drive and Park Avenue, University Park, PA. Tickets and parking passes can be purchased online or call 1-800-Nittany. This year’s Penn State home games are on:

Catch a game this fall and have a roaring good time no matter what stadium your are at. Don’t forget the trip would not be complete without a stay at a nearby Bed and Breakfast.
