The Penn State Nittany Lions are dead last in third-down conversions in the FBS. DEAD LAST. Although PSU has enough playmakers to win against their non-conference slate, it will be tough to get wins in the B1G if the team does not start making third-down conversions. This weekend would be a great time to start.
We can rationalize that running against an 8-man front from time to time puts the team in 3rd and long, but sometimes what you see is what you get, and this offensive line has not been performing nearly as well as Phil Grosz has been predicting ( best O-Line in 10 years!) all summer.
I will be looking for third-down conversions to increase, and sacks allowed to decrease this weekend. Can't blame the coach, the running backs, and the frosh QB forever. It's time for the O Line to man up.
Beat the Golden Knights....
Where's my pipe!
