Penn State just missed the cover on Saturday, topping the visiting Panthers 33-14 in less than spectacular fashion. Here are some of our favorite post-game takeaways from across the web.
PennLive’s Dave Jones has Penn State atop his Week 2 Big Ten power rankings. The Nittany Lions move to No. 1 for the first time this season ahead of Wisconsin and Michigan.
After the contest, James Franklin threw a little shade in the direction of the Panthers and then tried to walk it back. Sorry James, you’re not getting those words back. On the bright side, you weren’t wrong.
Centre Daily Times beat writer John McGonigal does some really good work and here he breaks down the good, the bad and the ugly from Penn State’s 33-14 win.
Nate Bauer of Blue-White Illustrated explains how the Nittany Lions found “redemption” for last year’s 42-39 loss in Heinz Field. While Franklin toed the line with his comments, players like Saquon Barkley were quite clear with his.
