Over the next couple weeks, we’ll preview the Big Ten on a team-by-team basis. Today, we start with Penn State.
For many Michigan fans, Penn State represents the low point of Michigan’s otherwise spectacular season. On February 27th, near the close of a brutal Big Ten season, the Wolverines traveled to Happy Valley to play a Nittany Lion team that hadn’t won a Big Ten game to that point. Inexplicably, Michigan lost 84-78. However, upon further reflection, that game signified a watershed moment for a program that is actually on the rise.
At that time, Tim Chambers’ team was due for its first Big Ten win after narrow losses at Illinois, at Michigan and against a tough Iowa team at home — Penn State may not have been winning games, but they were competing hard in the best basketball conference in the country.

I will say one thing, though. The Penn State fans brought it last night. I don't know about you...
Allen Robinson of Penn State is the best receiver in the Big Ten. He’s leading the Big Ten in receptions per game and in receiving yards per game. Allen Robinson is going to have such a stellar year in such a strong conference that Allen Robinson’s draft stock is going to go through the roof.
Robinson’s receptions per game average is 7.2, complementing his 16.4 yards per catch...
WHAT A GAME! Penn State shocks Michigan in the last minute with a 36 yard pass to Allen Robinson which would result in a touchdown the next play. The game went into 4OT and will go down as one of the best college football games in the past decade maybe even more. The Nittany Lions are now 4-2 on the season and have impressed the entire college football world after this win. Most...
Brace yourself, Penn State fans:
Is the Ghost of Joe Paterno at work again? Many of you already seem to think that the Ghost of Joe Paterno had a direct hand in helping the Nittany Lions beat Michigan in four overtimes Saturday night in State College. So if you think that the Ghost of Joe Paterno can win your team some football games, then you probably think that the Ghost of Joe...
Just after Penn State scored the winning touchdown to beat Michigan, coach Bill O'Brien sprinted down the field, arms raised, toward the sea of white in the south end zone.
There, his team assembled in front of the adoring, screaming fans as the Blue Band prepared to play the alma mater so players and fans alike could sing along.
It is scenes like that, in front of a sold-out...
