DUBLIN, IRELAND - Nittany Nation Reporter, Jacob Kaucher has already arrived safe and sound in Dublin, Ireland in advance of Saturday's Croke Park Classic.

Billboards and banners are hyping up the first college football game played at Croke Park in nearly 20 years.

While there is excitement locally, there's also some anger among fans of gaelic football.

A semi-final playoff match usually played at this historic stadium will have to change venues because of the Croke Park Classic.

Even the critics of the change, though, admit that there's excitement for American Football, saying there are simply fans coming out of the wood work for this game.
