Penn State will have at least one former player in each wildcard game this weekend, including five who will be running around the field trying to earn their way to a ring on Monday night’s showdown between Dallas and Tampa Bay.

If you’re like me, you spent the last several months glued to the college game, and now need a refresher on the NFL.

Before we get to the schedule though, I have two questions for our readers:

-Which will be the best game of the weekend?

-Which Nittany Lion playing this weekend has the most unlikely NFL career?
