It’s almost time for the final football Saturday for the Penn State Nittany Lions (6-5, 3-4).

The Badgers boast the fifth-best defense and the eighth-best running attack in the nation entering Saturday’s regular season-ending matchup.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Onward State! Aside from you readers, here is what our staff is thankful for this year.
Penn State has had a long-standing tradition of sending quality players to the NFL, and the 2013 season is no exception. Highlighted by stellar performances from linebacker Paul Posluszny and NaVorro Bowman, as well as quarterback Matt McGloin, former Nittany Lions are making their presence felt around the league.
