Ohio State has a very dominant defensive line, and there is no way to sugar coat the fact that the Buckeyes' front four could potentially have a field day against Penn State's weak offensive line. What makes Ohio State's line different than other lines Penn State has faced this season, you ask? Well, let's take a look.

On a cold, windy October day, the last thing one would expect to see standing next to the Willard building would be a group of shirtless atheists, begging you to pelt them with water balloons. But, in order to raise money for activities for the Penn State Atheists and Agnostic club, this is exactly what a brave, and somewhat cold, group of atheists decided to do.

Allen Robinson came into the Jaguars' organization with high expectations after the club drafted him 61st overall in the second round. After a slow start to the season, it appears that Robinson has found his groove in Jacksonville, as he begins to establish himself as a reliable go-to target for fellow rookie quarterback Blake Bortles.

Aside from being a great coach and wordsmith during his time in Happy Valley, Bill O'Brien always knew how to hold a damn fine press conference. That hasn't changed since he left for the NFL.

Zack Mills is a name that rings a bell for countless Nittany Lion fans for a variety of reasons. Some recognize him as the sophomore sensation who led Penn State to the Capital One bowl in 2002, only to fall short by a score of 13-9. Some recognize Mills as the quarterback Michael Robinson replaced in 2005, who went on to lead the Nittany Lions to a Big Ten Championship and an Orange Bowl title.

Penn State has the best run defense in the country and the best overall defense in the Big Ten. It will need to keep that up to have a chance against Ohio State next weekend.

Halloween is arguably the greatest weekend here at Penn State--costume parties and candy, what could be better? Unfortunately, it is also one of the most expensive. If you want to do Halloween properly, you have to have at least three clever costumes, because repeating is lame, and not dressing up is even lamer. Pre-made Halloween costumes happen to be incredibly expensive, and pretty much super boring. So, your options are pretty limited. Your best bet is scouring thrift shops and your own closet to DIY your own perfect costumes. Here are a few options that we came up with.

Amidst a climate of uproar in the heat of a long, grueling, and vastly fatal Vietnam War, a troublesome pattern of violent protests on college campuses was developing across America. It wasn’t all that long ago when students marched in droves to university president Eric Walker’s house and sent rocks crashing through his windows as the president retreated to safety.

Maiya Colon is a young toddler beaming with life and curiosity, much like anybody her age. The only difference is, young Maiya is facing the hardest challenge she will ever have to face. Charlie Shuman is a freshman offensive tackle playing football for Penn State. The two share a connection that goes above anything else, as it is Charlie's goodwill that has had such a tremendous impact on Maiya and her family.

Studies have shown time and again that the most innovative companies are the ones that make the greatest profits, best serve the community’s needs, and are the best places to work. It’s the ones that are a little crazy, the ones that draw outside the lines, who are leading the pack.

Well that happened. For the first time since 2007 -- the first time any current Penn State student has ever known -- Penn State lost to Michigan. It sucked. I was there, which sucked even more. Nonetheless, the Big House is a college football institution, and after taking an extra day to mourn, here are my observations.

Despite riding an ugly two game losing streak, the Penn State Nittany Lions are still bowl eligible, and only need to win two more games in order to ensure that they will be playing this postseason. If the past two games have been any indication, Penn State, which sits at 4-2, will most likely be out of the inaugural four team playoff race, barring any freak occurrences. With that said, there are a number of notable bowl games that the team could wind up playing in come December.

Along with any old bar, there’s bound to be some tradition to find within its dark, wooden walls. The Phyrst isn’t just any old bar, and so it has a whole lot more than just some tradition. In fact, State College’s favorite hole-in-the-wall drinking establishment is so steeped in tradition that it’s practically flowing out the front door onto Beaver Avenue.
