EA College Football Lets Players Recreate Iconic Penn State Football Moment

When thinking about what makes college football special, it doesn’t take long to get to the iconic Penn State Football Whiteout.

The annual spectacle is called one of the best atmospheres in sports yearly for a reason.

Penn State creates an “avalanche of sound” deafening opponents while dressed in white to create one of the most iconic scenes in college football.

107,000 fans dressed all in white, screaming and creating a hostile environment for opposing teams. ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit has called the whiteout, “as good as there is, not only in college football, but in sports.”

Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has called it “the most difficult place [he’s] ever coached” noting that the whiteout is worth a “10-point” differential in favor of the Nittany Lions.

There’s no better example of this than during the 2019 Penn State whiteout against Michigan.

Penn State’s whiteout crowd was so chaotic that the Wolverines were forced to call a timeout before the first play from scrimmage because of communication issues due to the crowd noise. The timeout has become iconic in college football lore as an example of why the Penn State whiteout is one of the top annual atmospheres in all of sports.


How You Can Create Penn State Football Iconic Moments

Now, with EA Sports College Football 25 video game coming out this summer after a 10-year hiatus, players will be able to recreate this iconic spectacle and the infamous 2019 timeout.

Announced on X Wednesday, the Athletic’s Chris Vannini announced that EA Sports recreated the iconic timeout during a gameplay demonstration of the new game. With the announcement, many reports have announced that iconic whiteout songs “Mo Bamba” and “Zombie Nation” will also be included, along with school-specific details such as the Penn State whiteout.

With stadium atmospheres reported to give players an advantage in the new game, anyone playing with Penn State could have a leg-up on their opponent before gameplay even begins with Penn State’s iconic crowd and spectacles being built into the new game.
