Aaaarrrribba! The leaves are turning and the weather is damp and cold and grey which could only mean one thing -- it's time for America's Greatest College Party Week. Fasten up your kickin' shoes and cheap ponchos! PUNTWEEK™ is here.

Wait, what's PUNTWEEK™?

Glad you asked! No live event can match the majesty of a high-flyin' poo-colored ball of pig flesh -- and thus PUNTWEEK™ was created to honor the most exciting play: the punt. Each year, punt appreciators from across the globe congregate in the exotic locales of either Bloomington, Indiana or State College, Pennsylvania for a week of events and revelry -- culminating with the premier attraction at PUNTWEEK™: an American Football competition between Indiana University and Pennsylvania State University.

Hold on, I've never heard of this. When was PUNTWEEK™ founded?

uh like ten minutes ago on this website

PUNTWEEK™ was established upon the one-year anniversary of the Greatest Intercollegiate Football Game Ever Played, last year's edge-of-your-seat thriller between Indiana and Penn State. The Nittany Lions took home the victory 13-7, but we all know the true winner -- you, the viewer.

Indiana and Penn State combined for *20* punts during this game, and thanks to PUNTWEEK™, the majesty of this game will never be lost or forgotten.

Ok, so, what happens during PUNTWEEK™?

Glad you asked! There's something for everyone during PUNTWEEK™!

PUNTWEEK™ brings punt fans the opportunity to hear directly from the pre-eminent minds in punting across the footballin' landscape. Ted Talk? Pshhhhh. How about PUNT-TALKS? Featuring:

  • 'Fourth And Two Is Not For You" - Ron Rivera
  • "PUNT: A Slam Poetry Session" - Kirk Ferentz
  • "Special Love: How Punting Helped Me Bring Back That Spark In Bed" - Frank Beamer
  • "Laying Up: Punting For Your Golf Game" - Zach Johnson
