As it turns out, the Nittany Lions win a lot more than they lose.

Penn State’s victory today means much more than just picking up its second win of the season. With the defeat of Rutgers, the Nittany Lions join Michigan, Ohio State, Alabama, Texas, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Nebraska as FBS football programs with 900 wins in its history.

USC (850), Tennessee (848), Georgia (837), and LSU (815) are the four programs next in line to reach 900 wins, meaning that Penn State has a comfortable margin. For those wondering, Pitt is at 737 wins, so the Panthers should get to 900 wins by the year 2120.

Here’s to the next 100 victories for the Nittany Lions.
