Penn State's Upset Doesn't Mean Anything

This little Purdue fan is so angry that she is a Purdue fan

Last weekend, Penn State's young football team pulled off perhaps the biggest upset of the college football season, knocking off unbeaten and No. 2-ranked Ohio State in front of 107,000 fans at a boisterous Beaver Stadium. Penn State defeated Purdue 62-24. However, Penn State players insist a letdown against Purdue is hardly likely considering the team's one-game-at-a-time approach.

Barkley also had three catches for 70 yards for the Nittany Lions, who outscored Purdue 45-7 in the second half. Saquon Barkley has run for 681 yards and eight touchdowns to lead the offense while Trace McSorley has thrown for 1,590 yards and nine touchdowns.

Purdue does have the advantage of playing at home and has a more "explosive offense" in terms of yards per game than Penn State, but nevertheless the Nittany Lions have the edge in term of confidence and playmaking ability.

"With so much at stake in a game like that, the focus is extreme".

Penn State scoring possessions that lasted 1:59 or less.

Interim coach Gerad Parker will coach his second game after changing up the Boilermakers' approach in the wake of Hazell's October 16 dismissal. The Boilermakers have held up in pass protection pretty well, aside from the six sack game at Maryland. It's passing game, headed by quarterback David Blough, leads the league (306.0).

"We're having no music and creating our own juice so we can try to start fast on the road", Barkley said.

Penn State picked up a huge win last week over Ohio State, returning a blocked field goal for a touchdown near the end to claim the win. Things improved, but tackling was an issue and the Lions were burned deep for a touchdown on a rare deep play. In the five years since the IL haven't been back in the polls and Purdue has only gone 18-44. We'll take it game by game.

McSorley finished 12 of 23 of 228 yards and the career-best three TDs. He was intercepted once, which set up a third-quarter TD. Only No. 2 MI has more (25).

Following the win over Ohio State, linebacker Brandon Bell was adamant in Penn State's locker room that teammates not view it as a "fluke". "We've got to do all these things better and buy in better, to get us to a point where we are then going to see some of those rewards". He beat Purdue defenders to the corner, with either speed or his stiff-arm, for big gains.

And one that plays an offensive style Penn State hasn't faced yet. To make matters worse for the Boilermakers, they had four turnovers in the second half (only three during meaningful time), and suddenly a game that was within reach for Purdue quickly got out of hand.

Franklin said he didn't get to bed until about 3:30 a.m. after the Ohio State upset, and he had to be awake the next morning to host brunch at his house for a good portion of the 180 recruits who reportedly attended the game.
