There is nothing like experiencing gameday in Happy Valley – the tailgating is second to none and Beaver Stadium is the most electric atmosphere in all of college football. But if you’re making the trip out to State College, why not make a long weekend out of your football trip?
There’s even more in store for State College Spikes fans as the 40-game regular season home schedule, matching the biggest in franchise history, starts off tomorrow with Opening Night presented by PSECU at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

On what would have been his 19th birthday, all of us at the State College Spikes are honored to announce that on Sunday, August 20, our friend and teammate Josiah Viera will be featured on jerseys that will be worn by the entire team, which will go up for bids in a Jersey-off-the-Back Auction presented by PSECU to benefit Children’s Miracle Network, specifically the work done by CMN at Gesinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Danville, which provided Josiah with outstanding care throughout his lifelong battle with progeria, a rapid aging condition.
“Over the years, there have been calls from various sectors of the community for a formal commission to seek out and attract larger national and international sports and entertainment events,” said Fritz Smith, HVAB President and CEO. “Buoyed by strong university and community support, we feel the time is now right to pursue the creation of a dedicated sports commission in order to capitalize on the tremendous opportunity we see for Happy Valley to grow into a sought-after destination for marquee events and tournaments.”
State College Spikes fans will have a wide variety of promotions and special events to look forward to during a 40-game home schedule this summer, highlighted by 12 fantastic FIREWORKS shows, a slate of legendary bobbleheads, and the return of $1 Beer Nights.
