Over the past few years, Blakeway Worldwide Panorams has provided  photos from big games at Beaver Stadium. Fans are able to zoom in on their section and see themselves with the unbelievable gigapixel photo. The company took a shot from the Rose Bowl as the Blue Band took the field and I decided to take a dive in and see who I could find.

I cannot confirm, but from a distance, it looks like former Penn State players, Deion Barnes, Gerald Hodges and Adrian Amos. The man in front of them strikes a resemblance to Franco Harris.barnes

The gigapixel is so great that it even captures the Goodyear blimp from above. 


 It took some time and though it's hiding behind a beer, I was able to find two more Tuddies shirts and you can get yours at our Roar Lions Roar store.


There you have it, a semi-detailed look around the Rose Bowl. Though about fifty percent of the people were looking at their phones, I was able to find some shots worth sharing. Luckily for Penn State fans, the picture was taken before the game and not the end because it wouldn't be as fun to look at pictures of people crying.
