Fifth-year senior tailback Derek Day could make his first career start when the Nittany Lions visit Virginia. Unlike a certain backfield mate, he doesn't mind being called a former walk-on (or run-on).
Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky regrets not taking the stand at his child sex abuse trial and likely will be sentenced next month, his defense lawyer said Wednesday.
Attorney Joe Amendola said he has not received a presentence report for Sandusky from the county court system and the defense has not decided whether to contest a recommendation that the 68...
Former Penn State and NFL fullback Franco Harris was in attendance this past Saturday to watch the Bill O’Brien era debut to a thud when the Nittany Lions lost to Ohio 24-14 from Beaver Stadium.
Harris was in attendance with Sue Harris, Joe Paterno’s widow, conservative talk show host John Ziegler and a cardboard cutout of the late Penn State head coach which read “due process...
Most everyone I know delighted in the fact that Penn State lost to Ohio from the MAC on Saturday. Serves them right, was the chorus from people rightfully outraged by Penn State’s scandal. Most right minded people recognize that Jerry Sandusky was the original doer of evil, while Joe Paterno, the Penn State faculty and the pervasive religion of Penn State football made the scandal...
Penn State’s 24-14 loss to Ohio Saturday has spawned lots of comments and opinions on how this team is “fragile” and that it “ran out of gas” in the fourth quarter.
I don’t buy it.
That may be the case later in the season, but I don’t believe that was the case against the Bobcats.
Look, all we heard about all spring and summer was how much better this new strength...
Penn State landed a commitment on Tuesday, going to California to pick up a pledge from 2013 forward Payton Banks.
This season–the 9-4 campaign of 2002–was an oasis in the sea of losing seasons known as “The Dark Years.” In particular, the Nittany Lions had this game circled on their calendars for more than a year.
The 2001 date in Charlottesville saw the Virginia Cavaliers come away with a 20-14 win, featuring at least one controversial fumble and a controversial offensive gameplan by...
Allen Robinson was an effective weapon in Penn State's passing attack to open the season. For his efforts Nittany Lion fans named him their Player of the Ohio Game.
Sprawled out in the Ohio end zone, grasping for something well beyond his reach, safety Jacob Fagnano’s posture as the game-clinching Ohio Bobcat TD was scored felt like a fitting end to the first game of the post-Paterno era at Penn State.
Fitting because Fagnano hailed from the defensive side of the ball. Everyone expected a steep learning curve on offense—especially due to...
By now the world knows that Penn State is a complete and utter disaster. Not only did they get raped and pillaged this off-season with legal troubles, the Joe Paterno Saga, etc.. (No pun intended) There was a substantial exodus of players before the start of the 2012 season. It hurts to be a Penn State fan right now, it hurts.
Saturday, State took the field with an opportunity...
Just like I do anytime I discuss something that has anything to do with football at Penn State University these days, I want to first and foremost say that there is nothing more important then the victims of the child abuse crimes committed by former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. With that said, the healing process began on Saturday with the first football game not to be...
Randolph (N.J.) High offensive tackle and Penn State commit Brendan Mahon returned to Happy Valley for the season opener against Ohio. And although the Nittany Lions lost, he was thrilled to be back to watch football.
Check out our images of the key plays and key players from Penn State's season-opener.
