2013: 7-5 (4-4 Big Ten)
The Penn State football program continues to deal with the fallout surrounding the scandal involving Sandusky and Paterno. The team, although bowl eligible, was banned from competing in a postseason bowl game for the 2013 season. On the field the Nittany Lions had an average year. After winning their first two games they alternated wins and losses the rest of the year. Two of their biggest wins came against #18 Michigan, 43-40, and #14 Wisconsin 31-24 True freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg led the Nittany Lions on offense and looks to be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years. Penn State will have to deal with the departure of star wide receiver, Allen Robinson who was drafted in the second round of the NFL draft. There is plenty of excitement around the 2014 season though. Former head coach Bill O’Brien has left the program for the NFL and former Vanderbilt coach, James Franklin will now be running the show. Franklin’s energetic style has already gotten the attention of many Nittany Lion fans. Don’t miss out on a chance to see the start of a new era for Penn State football!
