Nick Tarburton came up with some big moments as Penn State’s defense dominated the day.

James Franklin won’t let the sloppy conditions be an excuse for poor ball security on Saturday.

At least there was easy-access to cold beer for fans who sat through the downpour to watch the Nittany Lions take down the Wildcats.

It’s a long road ahead, but the 5-0 start is quite the accomplishment considering the many question marks heading into the season.

I’m sure you came to this conclusion well before the game ended, but the defense received high marks while the offense needs improvement.

Brenton Strange, Chop Robinson, Parker Washington and others speak to the media following the 17-7 victory over Northwestern.
