For PSU students, there's nothing like Nittanyville

UNIVERSITY PARK – On seven autumn Saturdays every year, State College is flooded with tens of thousands of football frenzied Nittany Lions fans.

But for a select group of Penn State students, the celebration of Blue and White football extends far beyond the confines of a Saturday filled with tailgates and touchdowns.

Penn State Predictions: Handling the Hoosiers

Well, that was close.

The Penn State walk-off win at Iowa stunned our staff, which had predicted pretty lopsided wins. Intern Abbi Sales was the closest, predicting a 7-point Penn State win.

This week, the Nittany Lions return to Beaver Stadium to face Indiana, a team which will present some problems for the PSU defense. However, playing at home should help the Lions. We’re guessing there will be an electric atmosphere for the “Generations of Greatness” Game.

Let’s cut to the chase and see what our staff thinks of this one.

Penn State Predictions: Prime Time It Is!

Week 4 has arrived. Penn State travels to Iowa City for its first Big Ten contest and road game of the young season.

The Nittany Lions have struggled with the Hawkeyes in the past, but have dominated the series as of late, winning three straight. Kinnick Stadium is never an easy place to play, and Penn State head coach James Franklin knows that. He addressed the noise factor during the week by pumping in loud music to Penn State’s practices.
