NCAA Football: Penn State at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

So much for that rivalry.

Thanks to a dominant second half, Penn State rolled Pitt 51-6 to move to 2-0 on the season. With Kent State coming to town on Saturday, the Nittany Lions should enter conference play undefeated.

The Centre Daily Times’ John McGonigal outlined the good, the bad and the ugly from Saturday’s contest and highlighted five freshmen who impacted the game.

Over at FanSided, Dylan Burd graded how each position performed for the Nittany Lions, while The Daily Collegian’s football beat broke down the game in the latest episode of its podcast.

Also from The Daily Collegian, Thomas Schlarp opined how James Franklin has mastered the art of getting in opposing coaches’ heads.

The Athletic’s Audrey Snyder also provided her takeaways from the thrashing.

Despite the blowout loss, Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi isn’t ready to put this “rivalry” to bed.

Forecasting Kent State

Penn State football and brutal weather conditions go hand in hand. This weekend could be especially rough, however, as Hurricane Florence is due to hit land later this week near Wilmington, N.C. The forecast has already caused Penn State to close select parking lots for the weekend.

While the weather has been a key factor in both of Penn State’s games this season, PennLive has a few other X-factors for Saturday’s noon kick.
