One more day until the Penn State Football team takes the field for the first time this season.

One more day until the iconic blue buses drop off the boys in blue and white ahead of battle.

One more day until there are swarms of Penn State faithful as far as the eye can see in each direction, gathering around grills and coolers on a beautiful, sunny afternoon.

One more day until you wake up and realize there will be a Penn State football game that day.

One more day until the mystery senior dons the Nittany Lion costume.

One more day until Sean Clifford takes his first snap under center seven yards behind the center for the first time as Penn State’s starting quarterback.

One more day until the incoming freshmen sprints out of the Beaver Stadium tunnel in front of a raucous crowd for the very first time.

One more day until KJ Hamler catches a pass, turns upfield, and his legs become a blur as he sprints towards the end zone.

One more day until the drum major nails the flip.

One more day until 100,000-plus let out a loud and cathartic “WE ARE” chant.

One more day until we dust off that lucky t-shirt/jersey/underwear for the first time this fall.

One more day until we see all the hours in the weight room, film room and practice field begin to pay off.

One more day until the Wild Dogs are set loose.
