AKEEL LYNCH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Lynch ready to lead Penn State on, off field

Now an elder statesman in the running backs room, Akeel Lynch intends to have a breakout year for Penn State in 2015.  He also knows he needs to impart as much wisdom as he can to the rest of the players at his position -- all of whom are redshirt or true freshmen.  "A lot has changed in the past years," Lynch told PennLive.com.

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. ''I think my mindset is just to conduct myself like a starter, no matter the situation...
