About Us


By Penn State Fans, For Penn State Fans

Nittany Blues is a fan-made podcast about Penn State football, basketball, and all things Nittany Lions.

Our podcast started the same way many others do: with two friends and die-hard fans who love to chat sports.

At Nittany Blues, our goal is to provide you with interesting content about PSU athletics, the fan experience, and the Penn State community that doesn’t lean too heavily on the X’s and O’s.

Topics we discuss

At Nittany Blues, we primarily discuss Penn State football and basketball. However, we chat about and share updates on all things Nittany Lions athletics. With our weekly episodes, you’ll hear the latest on:

  • Penn State football and basketball game previews, recaps, recruiting news, and team updates

  • Updates from all Penn State sports including wrestling, lacrosse, volleyball, track & field, and more

  • News and stories from the Penn State community

Meet our tailgating experts


If you listen to our show, you’ll learn that we love tailgating. No one knows how to entertain on game day quite like our tailgating experts Fred and Bill. They’re both lifelong Nittany Lions fans and have been perfecting their tailgating setup for more than a decade. We love to get their thoughts on the team, discuss game day cuisine, and share some helpful tailgating tips. You can find them on all of our tailgating episodes.
