Nittany Lions game buttons get shelved

The buttons that are a Penn State football weekend traditions apparently won't be available any time soon.

Citizens Bank, of State College, has provided the buttons for each game for the past 39 seasons. The bear fan-written slogans in support of the Nittany Lions that are unique to each game.

But this week, the buttons have become scarce.

When asked about the buttons, a branch manager in downtown State College said, “We have no comment on that situation” before hanging up.

An employee at another branch said the bank won’t be putting buttons out for the upcoming game or the next one.

The buttons for Saturday's game against Ohio State, and the Nov. 26 game at Wisconsin apparently have been produced, as they were seen at Beaver Stadium during Saturday's matchup against Nebraska.
