The stubborn rain that drenched State College, PA Saturday gave new meaning to the name Beaver Stadium, but neither the soggy weather nor a loss to Penn State seemed to dampen the enthusiasm of many UB Bulls fans.

Penn State scored a 27-14 victory, but some UB fans found reason for optimism.

“Defense looked phenomenal,” said Trevor Lisa, who spoke with WBFO moments after the game ended.

Lisa’s brother, Collin Lisa, is a wide receiver for the Bulls. The player's dad, Gary Lisa, also put a positive spin on the game.

“I thought the team played well. I thought the defense played very strong. I thought the quarterback got comfortable toward the end,” he said.

Others noted that the Bulls were down by only 6 points early in the fourth quarter.

Kaley Russin had a special reason to make her first visit to Beaver Stadium.

“My boyfriend was out there, so that was pretty fun to watch,” she said, referring to linebacker Okezie Alozie.

How did the team look in Russin’s eyes?

“There’s always room for improvement, right?" she replied with a chuckle. "But they looked good.”

Even though the stadium seats more than 106,000 people, the rainy weather kept the crowd to about 65,000 on Saturday.

“It was fun but wet,” said Russin, a Bethlehem, PA resident.  “I’m drenched.”
