|We Are Penn State (1992)
Treat yourself to a musical memory of the big game with pregame music, fight songs, and halftime show tunes.

NFOS is an acronym for the music performed by the Blue Band as it marches to its trademark PSU formation. Composed more than 30 years ago by Jerry Bilik, NFOS stands for “New Fight On State,” to distinguish it from the Yoder arrangement played after every touchdown. Enjoy this and twenty-six other superb arrangements that will transport you to Beaver Stadium on game day. Track List and Downloads
