The Nittany Lions are heading into their season ranked at No. 9.
With tailgating a part of what makes Penn State football a special tradition, where does your tailgate rank?
The Mirror is looking for Beaver Stadium's best tailgate parties. The five best will be ranked and featured in a series that will count down to the top-ranked tailgate.
Stories and photos will run on the days of the last five home games this season, beginning with the Iowa game on Sept. 26 and ending with the Indiana game on Nov. 14.
Nominations will be accepted through Sept. 10 and should be submitted to Mirror News Editor Margaret Moses at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, cell phone number and location where you generally tailgate, so we can stop by and check it out.
