Nittany Lions to wear throwback uniforms for game vs

Some throwback uniforms in college football, like Oregon's "Webfoots" design or Ohio State's 1916 homage, are loud and dramatic. It's a way for the Nittany Lions to honor their past. The team will wear striped socks that pay tribute to the early 19702, block numbers from the 1950s and helmet numbers from the late 1960s and early '70s.

However, we think most, if not all, PSU supporters will like the retro unis the Nittany Lions revealed today. Last but certainly not least, Penn State will ditch their iconic black cleats for white cleats, which were made famous in the 1979 Sugar Bowl.

Heading into 2017, expectations are that Penn State will be even better.

In addition to the special throwback uniforms, Penn State is planning to add other throwback elements to their gameday presentation.
