I enjoy watching Penn State Football games, but I don't live in an area where they are often broadcasted. I don't live in Pennsylvania, so can't listen to radio stations in the Penn State Sports Network. My solution has been to listen online. Here are some links I use to listen to Penn State Football online.

Penn State College Football on the Web
Living in Edmonton, Alberta, we don't see many Penn State football games on television. Heck, here ... if it's not played on ice, it ain't on T.V. (From the fan-base, you would think hockey was the National sport of Canada, but it's not ... it's Lacrosse). So what's a geographically-challenged PSU graduate & football fan supposed to do?
The Internet started out as an academic tool and historically, was built on a "for-free", "to-the-betterment-of-mankind" philosophy. In years gone by, Yahoo-sports used to broadcast college games at no charge. No longer. 2004 marked the first time that you had to pay to hear live, streaming audio of Penn State football games via Yahoo-sports.
I refuse to pay for something that's televised on major U.S. networks, across large portions of the country (regional games) and broadcast over a network of radio stations that cover much of Pennsylvania. I may be geographically-challenged, but I don't see why I should have to shell out money because of it.
So, in the spirit of the Internet - (which I still hold dear, offering a photo-caption zoom technique, and also provide programming and support for folks) - I'm sharing the information that I've gathered about listening to live audio of Penn State football games on the Internet.
If you're interested in listening to live Penn State football games on the Internet, (or applying similar search techniques for your favorite college football team) ... then read on, brave fans ...

It's getting more difficult to find PSU football games online, because the Penn State Sports Network is clamping down on radio stations with "listen-live" options that broadcast games.
We think this sends the wrong message to PSU alumni and vow to keep finding ways to bring geographically-challenged grads together, by listening to Penn State football games, on-line.
When it comes to Penn State home games, my solution last year is the same solution I've using this year - The Lion 90.7 FM. It's a student radio station and the announcers are students, but they only cover home games. I like supporting student radio and the play calling and discussion is both interesting and good.
Things get more challenging when Penn State plays away games. Historically, I've relied on Yahoo-sports coverage, (provided that their opponent has such free coverage). Michigan doesn't and as much as I want to listen to the game, I'm not going to pay $50 for the year (or $6.95 monthly) for a subscription at CSTV, when there are live coverage is offered free over the radio airwaves. It's the principle of the thing.
Last year, I gave up listening to Penn State away games - listening only to home games ... thinking I had no choice. This year, with a Nationally-ranked team, I'm much more excited about each game and have become a tad militant about finding streaming broadcasts.
The technique I used is pretty simple and can be applied to most major U.S. college football teams. Most major Universities (like Penn State) has a radio affiliate base that broadcast football games to small towns across the entire state. For Penn State, the radio affiliate network is listed on GoPSUsports. I went down the list and found all of the radio stations that have a 'listen-live' option.
Student Radio - The Best Choice
The Lion 90.7 FM (State College, PA) - Support student radio! Great home game coverage, with student announcers. Note: Home Games ONLY
ComRadio (PSU.edu) - Student hosted. About: "Generally, the station's schedule includes student-produced news and talk shows as well as play-by-play of Penn State sports. When student programming is not on the air, ComRadio supplements its coverage with Associated Press All-News Radio.") Link worked well and WinAmp player came up for me.
WAEB 790 AM (Allentown PA) - Note: This station uses IP-sniffing to allow only Unites States listeners. The good news is that if you're outside the US, there is a work-a-round. Instead of using the link above, come in the back door (which brings up their Oldies station). Then select "News/Talk AM 790 WAEB".
WKOK 1070 AM (Sunbury, PA) - I've never had much success with streaming media using my local copy of the Windows Media Player (even though I have the latest release). Using the link on the site, I couldn't get an audio signal. However, when I pointed my Real Media Player at - http://18.104.22.168:8080/wkok - (File - Open URL), I got a signal.
WAVT 101.9 FM (Pottsville, PA) - T-102 FM in Pottsville, PA broadcasts on the Internet. Their "listen live" link is in the upper left. (40 Kbps, 36 KHz, Stereo signal).
WPPA 1360 AM (Pottsville, PA) - Click the listen-live link, in the right-hand column, to catch PSU football games. The signal is only 32 kilo-bits per second (compared to a normal 128kbsp stream), so might sound a tad like a 1960's transistor radio. (For that old-time effect).
WSBA 910 AM (York, PA) - The embedded Windows Media Player makes WSBA unique. It's a nice solution, as it transcends independent listener solutions (with version, O/S and configuration differences & problems).
Might Work Better for you?
WJBR 1290 AM (Wilmington, DE) - The embedded Windows Media Player makes WJBR ("The Ticket" - Sports Radio 1290 AM) unique. It's a nice solution, as it transcends independent listener solutions (with version, O/S and configuration differences & problems) ... Flash Macromedia Ads are repetitive and annoying, but the signal appeared to be strong.
WHGL 100.3/102.9 FM (Troy/Elmira, PA) - Clicking the "Listen Live" link on the "Wiggle" website brought up my default player (WinAmp), which yielded an error. However, manually plugging the "listen live" link into RealPlayer yielded a signal. 23-Sep-2010 | New Link
The link: http://www.wiggle100.com/audio/wiggle100.asx
WVNJ 1160 AM (New York, NY) - When I clicked "Listen Live", I got a customized player that connected and buffered, but I never got a audible stream. (I tried with different browsers, but the same thing happened). Maybe it will work for you?
WNPV 1440 AM (Lansdale, PA) - The default player (for me) was WinAmp and the signal came across consistent and strong.
WRSC AM 1390 (State College, PA) - None of the "Streaming Options" worked for me. Maybe they will for you? If they do, let me know.
