The latest: The Penn State Blue Out. In the past, fans of the football team have worn all white to certain home games. That was called a "White Out." Now, the 8-1 Nittany Lions will play host to Nebraska in front of an all blue crowd.

"In addition to being the color of our team's home game jerseys, blue represents the color of bruises that have too often been neglected," the school said in a Facebook post that was reprinted by the Philadelphia Daily News.

"Let's make national news for our collective actions to show solidarity with both the victims and our fellow classmates on the field."

You can buy blue shirts online, if you're planning on attending the game. Or, even if you arent -- proceeds will go entirely to Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania.
