The Penn State Nittany Lions football program currently resides in the Big Ten conference and has won two National Championships. 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 program looks to begin a new era when new head coach James Franklin leads the Nittany Lions into the 2014 season.

The first half of Penn State football has come to an end, and there is a lot to be excited about. Christian Hackenberg looked every bit of the 2013 Big Ten Freshman of the Year we remember from last year. Despite feeling constant pressure from the UCF front seven, he was able to make some great throws. In the first quarter, he went 8-10, with 103 yards and an interception.
