Andrew Callahan of Lions247 has a story on how the Penn State players figured out Ohio State had won, and what type of role that played in the Nittany Lions’ victory. He also has a notebook with a bunch of thoughts, namely that Saquon Barkley should be ready to go for the Big Ten Championship.
The great Arielle Sargent of Penn State Athletics has postgame video interviews with the players and Coach Franklin.
Over at Onward State, Ethan Kasales summed up Penn State’s improbable season — from the shellacking against Michigan to raising the Big Ten East trophy. David Abruzzese outlines where the Nittany Lions go from here.
Simply put, Penn State football is back, says Andrew Rubin of the Daily Collegian.
Thank you to Graham Couch of the Lansing State Journal because these Michigan State tears are delicious, oh my gosh they are so mad.
What would Penn State winning the Big Ten mean for the playoff selection committee? Dieter Kurtenbach of Fox Sports says it would be a “nightmare scenario.”
Heather Dinich of ESPN says Penn State fans should be cautiously optimistic about the Nittany Lions’ playoff chances.
Ohio State could get left out of the playoff, according to Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports.
Greg Pickel at PennLive shares his thoughts on the game, and also gives a bit of a recruiting roundup.
