With two national titles and four Big Ten Championships to its name, the Penn State Nittany Lions football program is coming off a year where it captured its first conference title under James Franklin. Known for tradition, Beaver Stadium, and Joe Paterno, the program is a point of pride in the community after the team persevered following harsh NCAA sanctions that eliminated wins and placed scholarship reductions on the program. The team will try to make even more strides with Saquon Barkley and Trace McSorley leading the charge for the 2017 season.
Good morning from Lincoln, Nebraska. In a few hours, the Penn State Nittany Lions (6-3, 4-1) will take on the eighteen ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-1) in a Big Ten showdown at Memorial Stadium. The Cornhuskers are led by head coach Bo Pelini who is in his fifth year with the program. Bill O’Brien will be looking to remain undefeated in conference road games during his first season with the Nittany Lions.
