Penn State Football: Nittany Lion Logo Installed At Beaver Stadium
Beaver Stadium took a step toward the 2014 season as a massive Nittany Lion logo was lifted into place along the back of the north end zone scoreboard on Thursday.
Measuring in at 35 feet wide, 28 feet high and 18 inches thick the scoreboard will be visible at night. It's fitted with 1,400 LED lights that will make for a new must-have photo on a Saturday in Happy Valley. The logo is the first of two that will be added to the stadium. The other logo will be installed on the south scoreboard in the coming weeks. Each weighs in at roughly 6,500 pounds.
Both scoreboards are currently being renovated and will feature large HD screens. All construction will be completed by the start of James Franklin's first season at Penn State and should provide fans and onlookers with quite the view inside and outside the stadium.
