WPSU brings back football show 'Huddle Up Nittany Lion Fans'

University Park, Pa. -- Football season is upon us, and nobody rallies around a college team quite like a Penn State fan does. From dressing kids in lion costumes to decking out an RV in full blue and white regalia, the Nittany Nation is ready for the 2010 Penn State football season.

As fans prepare the game each week, Penn State Public Broadcasting offers the most complete and in-depth analysis of Penn State football. Check out "Huddle Up Nittany Lion Fans," a weekly TV forum for all things PSU football. Steve Jones, the show’s host and the radio play-by-play voice of the Nittany Lions, will lead the huddle in lively discussions each week on the state of the team as well as insights from around the conference with Big Ten football radio personalities. Mark Brennan, editor of fightonstate.com joins Steve each week with insider analysis. New this season, Penn State football fans will get a chance to join the huddle. Steve and Mark will include in their weekly football discussion feedback and predictions from fans via e-mail and other social media.
