3 Penn State Football: Sorry, But Rutgers Is A Rival… For Now

I get it. You really, really don’t think of Rutgers as a rival to Penn State. If you haven’t heard, just check any message board discussing the Monday announcement that this season’s game against Rutgers will be played at night. And you aren’t “wrong.” Penn State picking up 23 wins in 25 meetings doesn’t exactly scream competitive rivalry.

0 Blue-White Game Countdown / 19 Days: Cue The Music, ‘Hey, It’s Franklin’

James Franklin and about thirty dozen of his closest friends got together in Holuba Hall on Saturday morning. It was Practice Five of Penn State’s 2015 spring football season. But Job One for Franklin was about a half-dozen things. All were part of Penn State football. And Franklin was in the middle of them all — equal parts CEO, coach, recruiter, cheerleader, spokesman, and even manager.
