Although the outcome to the last game wasn’t what Penn State fans had hoped for, the team chemistry and player development have both improved immensely throughout the season. “I think we have gotten dramatically better since week one,” Franklin said. “I think the trajectory of the program and what we’re doing is really good.”

It is the little things, or the “one percent”, that makes Penn State an elite football team. “Every stage you get to, you fight like heck to get there and to break through,” Franklin said. “I’m very, very pleased with the direction we’re going.”
