UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State alumni, students and fans traveling to the 103rd Rose Bowl Game should make plans to cheer on their Nittany Lions Jan. 1 at the Official Penn State Pep Rally.

The pep rally is free and open to all Penn Staters.

Entrance to the pep rally will be at the intersection of Chick Hearn Court and Georgia Street.
