The line snaked down Curtin Road, leading up to a grassy hill by tunnel on the West end of Beaver Stadium.
It was two and a half hours before kickoff of Penn State's second home game of the season -- against Navy (0-1) -- but hundreds of fans were there. They waited, patiently, many wearing t-shirts that said things like, "Still Proud to Support PSU Football" and "One Team."
Indeed, it appears most Penn State fans are still proud to support Bill O'Brien's squad, which is seeking its first win of the season.
At 12:51, a blue school bus pulled up and the crowd errupted. They clapped loudly for the next 15 minutes as Penn State players -- led by O'Brien -- exited the bus and walked into the stadium.
Many players waved to the crowd and some even high-fived fans in the front row.
When the final player walked into the stadium, the crowd erupted into a "We Are.." chant.
