The Penn State-Pitt Rivalry Now Has a Nickname and Corporate Sponsor

Unfortunately, the sponsor is not Arby’s.

Penn State V Pittsburgh

The impending renewal of the Penn State-Pitt football rivalry on September 10th is one that has been met with plenty of anticipation, trepidation, banter (witty and below-the-belt), and excitement from both fan bases. The only thing missing of course, was a clever nickname and some type of corporate sponsor (because this is America, damn it!), which brings us to today’s announcement that the PSU-Pitt game will hereby be officially known as the “Keystone Classic Presented By People’s Natural Gas:”

Why they didn’t just go all-out and call it the “Keystone Classic Presented by Keystone Light” is beyond me.
