Fans fill up Beaver Stadium on Friday night to get ready for another football season.

After an offseason of turmoil at Penn State, a pep rally is underway to cheer on the Nittany Lions football team and new coach Bill O'Brien.

The traditional cheer of ``We Are ... Penn State'' roared through the student section. Ohio visits Beaver Stadium on Saturday for the historic season opener.

Scandal embroiled the team all offseason. The NCAA levied strict sanctions on Penn State including a four-year bowl ban for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

O'Brien is focused on moving the program forward. New signs at Beaver Stadium include the slogan ``One Team'', a motto for the entire athletic department, not just the football team.

NBC10's John Clark is there, follow him on Twitter @johnclarknbc10.
