Sneak peek: First look at Penn State nameplates
As it was announced last week, Penn State is adding nameplates to the back of its jerseys for the first time in program history. The Nittany Lions also will wear a blue ribbon on their uniform to support all victims of child abuse. @PennStateFball tweeted a picture of the road jersey nameplates Tuesday afternoon. See the photo in this post, plus a video of the home nameplates being prepared.

And here’s a YouTube video of the home nameplates being put together:
