As always, some thoughts:

  • No changes as far as who played last week compared to this week. Those that played against Indiana, once again saw time against Ohio State. Those didn’t see time against Indiana, surprisingly, didn’t get thrown into the fire against Ohio State.
  • The most obvious talking point of the frosh: the freshman wideouts. Parker Washington had a strong performance against the Buckeyes, hauling in four receptions for 73 yards, bringing his season total to 6/85. Meanwhile, KeAndre Lambert-Smith was once again had a nice game, coming away with two receptions for 18 yards. Are those numbers going to blow people’s minds? No, but watching Washington and Lambert-Smith, you have to feel good about the Nittany Lions’ future at wide receiver. Credit to new wide receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield — he’s had his guys ready to go.
  • Curtis Jacobs saw his first snaps at linebacker, coming in for a series or two during the showdown with the Buckeyes. Like I said last week, I think you’ll see Jacobs get more and more time as the season goes along. Super talented kid.
  • Penn State essentially abandoned running the ball with the running back in the second half, but it was still disappointing that the frosh running backs — Keyvone Lee and Caziah Holmes — didn’t get any carries. Hopefully there’s more moving forward; especially for Keyvone Lee. Really liked what we saw from him against Indiana.
