Penn State’s 23-17 victory over historic rival Syracuse in MetLife Stadium may not have been pretty, but now fans of the Nittany Lions can honor the victory whenever they want with a commemorative t-shirt depicting the final score from the 2013 season opener.
Yes, now Penn State fans can pull out a t-shirt from the drawer, put it on, look in the mirror and smile back fondly on the afternoon that saw freshman Christian Hackenberg throw two touchdowns and 278 yards, or reflect on how Allen Robinson sat out the first half for an undisclosed reason only to spark life on his first two plays on the field in the second half.
The t-shirts, sold on the school’s official online store sell for $17.95 (why not $23.17?) Other programs have printed shirts for each win of their season before, so this idea is nothing new. It is a new idea for Penn State, at least for a regular season game not tied to any historic milestones.
