Freshman looking to make impact at running back for Penn State

Penn State appears set to have Akeel Lynch as its starting tailback this fall, but such a demanding position generally demands multiple contributors.  Never can a college football team have too many weapons, either, which is why Saquon Barkley has high hopes for getting heavily involved as a true freshman.  PSU strength and conditioning coach Dwight Galt told the Allentown Morning...

PSU Players Akeel Lynch, Adam Breneman Have A Message For The Naysayers

Saturday night, Penn State played in its first postseason game in three years, defeating Boston College in a wild Pinstripe Bowl that went into overtime.

Maine again? and other links

BCI picked up on a tweet out of Maine reporting that BC will face the Black Bears again in 2015. My preference is to rotate the FCS patsies, but it really doesn't matter. Next year's non-conference schedule is very soft, but that will help our young team.Sad and strange news as former BC Basketball reserve Nate Fox was killed two days before Christmas. Police are investigating. After...

Penn State's Lynch patiently waits his turn

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Physically, Penn State tailback Akeel Lynch isn't on the field frequently. Mentally, he doesn't miss a snap. The redshirt sophomore is third in line in a three-back Nittany Lion rotation and, even though he stays active on special teams, his focus is on every offensive play.
