Watch James Franklin's Postgame Press Conference Following the Northwestern Loss

New, comments

Coach gives his opinions on the game.

Penn State fell to Northwestern by a final of 23-21 on Saturday. The Nittany Lions fought hard to come back despite being down 20-7 in the second half, but just couldn't put the nail in the coffin. With 3 minutes remaining in the game, Penn State was unable to pick up a first down to basically end the game, then elected not to effectively use timeouts to save themselves time for a final drive while Northwestern set themselves up for the game-winning field goal.

James Franklin was asked about said clock management decisions and more in his post-game press conference. To also see interviews with Christian Hackenberg, DaeSean Hamilton, Austin Johnson and Jason Cabinda, visit Audrey Snyder's post for the Pittsburgh Gazette.
