After a historic win in East Lansing, Saturday's showdown between the Nittany Lions and Minnesota is set to be the biggest home game in Happy Valley in years. No. 22 Penn State won't be alone as they take on the Gophers. They'll have a packed house rooting them on, as the Bryce Jordan Center is officially sold out.

For a venue more well-known for selling out concerts than basketball games, this is a huge deal for Pat Chambers and his team. It's been a long journey to get to this point, but the Nittany Lions are playing the best basketball their fans have seen in a long, long time, and look poised to make an impact in March.

After a monumental road win over No. 16 Michigan State, Penn State suddenly finds itself with a clear path to winning the Big Ten regular-season title. Doing so will require a few more big wins down the stretch, though, and it starts with conquering one of the few teams to beat the Lions to this point in the season.

Be loud. Wear white.

Go State, beat the Gophers.
