Bubble Talk Resumes As Penn State Defeats Minnesota

With 10:41 left in the first half of Thursday night's game, Jeff Brooks was called for his second foul of the game and joined Andrew Jones, who picked up two quick ones not even two minutes into the game, on the bench. That's when Talor Battle put on his cape and saved the day, not to the surprise of anyone in the Bryce Jordan Center.

Battle tied a career-high with seven three-pointers, most of which came from at least 25 feet away, and scored 28 points to lead Penn State to a 66-63 win over Minnesota.

UPUA to Vote on Lewistown Amtrak Shuttle

The University Park Undergraduate Association saw a special presentation from Off-Campus Representative Haley McClernon about the possibility of running a shuttle from State College to the Amtrak station in Lewistown, which are not currently linked.

The Assembly will vote on two proposals next week, one service offered through Fullington Tours, and the other through Nittany Express. Budget-balancing enthusiasts, accounting majors, sharpen your pencils.

It seems pretty cut and dry, but when you stop a minute to think, there are some more factors that can enter into the decision making process. So you can check out the presentation shown to the Assembly and decide for yourself. Most importantly, tell your representatives what you think! Let them make no mistake about what you, as their constituent, want.
