Photo: Billboard For Penn State-UCF "Croke Park Classic" In Ireland Features Players As Actual Knight And Lion

Penn State and UCF face off in Dublin, Ireland to kick off the season with the "Croke Park Classic" on August 30. The game is already putting up billboards to draw interest from the local community, and they're taking this "Lions" vs. "Knights" match-up very literally. A billboard in Dublin features players from each team, with the UCF player's helmet featuring a knight's plume, and the Penn State player as some sort of Lion-like humanoid.

Penn State coach James Franklin has already sent a strange lion-humanoid tweet this off-season. Maybe he's been doing some marketing and ad-design on the side.
