Penn State hosted Military Appreciation Day over the weekend as they hosted Navy in football. The day was filled with pageantry, including a military fly over, a parade of champions and salutes to our nation's veterans and those currently serving. The Penn State Blue Band also paid tribute to the different services of the armed forces during their halftime show.

... next up, the Ma...

The pregame flyover prior to Penn State's week three game against Navy was pretty cool, but few images will resonate the way the postgame singing of the Penn State Alma Mater will for me, and I can only imagine that those with much closer ties and bonds to the Penn State community will agree.

When the sun rose over Mount Nittany on Saturday morning, it had been 10 torturous months since Penn State last won a football game, and even longer since the Nittany Lions emerged victorious from Beaver Stadium.
Granted, in college football, 10 months isn't all that long. Not with an eight-month offseason, anyway. But for most in and around the Penn State program, the wait...

A new NCAA task force will come up with guidelines for how to distribute the record $60 million fine that Penn State has agreed to pay in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

While Penn State was busy dominating Navy on Saturday, the Big Ten thought Michael Mauti and Deion Barnes were particularly dominant. Mauti was named the B1G Defensive Player of the Week and Barnes was selected as the B1G Co-Freshman of the Week. Not too shabby to pile on top of the Nittany Lions’ first win.
Mauti racked up double-digit tackles for the second time this season...
