Penn State Jerseys With Names Being Sent to Ireland
If you were being kept up at night wondering how Penn State’s jerseys would look in 2014, rest easy!
If this jersey of defensive tackle Tarow Barney is like the rest of them, names will remain on the backs of the white and blue this year.
This jersey was spotted as tons of equipment was loaded up for the trip to Ireland Tuesday morning. Penn State will be playing UCF in Dublin on Saturday.
If these jerseys are any indication, it looks like the names will be staying on the back of the jerseys this season. pic.twitter.com/aFBSpt2sAb

Bill O’Brien added the names to the jerseys for the 2012 season to recognize the resolve and dedication of those players that didn’t transfer after the sanctions were handed down.
In both offseasons since, speculation swirled about whether the names would stay.
James Franklin was cognizant of how much fans care about Penn State’s look, and he joked on ESPN this summer that Penn State would do something similar to Oregon with its jerseys. However, he never made an official ruling on the jerseys.
For what it’s worth, the uniforms were also ranked No. 1 in the league by NFL.com this summer.
