crownebeach 10 I guess? I think Ohio is a decent team and PSU killed them, but, idk. Just like Week 1 I think I'm probably overrating them but I like the look of them on paper.

Our-Gardian-Angel 19 Can't say I caught a single second of this game, but Penn State did what they were supposed to at home against a MAC team. Also, the stat of 17 different PSU players having a reception is hard to wrap one's head around. (Week 2: Penn State 46, Ohio 10; Record: 2-0)

MWiatrak2077 22 QB controversy brewing? Not really, at least, not right now. PSU is doing exactly what they need to do before they go on to face the Big Ten East: win. No funny business with the Ohio Bobcats this week, just a clean, old fashioned, ass-whooping. Penn State amounted 572 yards of offense, doubling up Ohio'. Most importantly, freshman RB Nicholas Singleton absolutely shined today, with a whopping 179 yards, 2 TDs, on 17.9(!!!) YPC. It may be too early to tell, but this young, high-recruited RB seems to be the real deal, and could put the Nittany Lions back on the map. Sean Clifford posted a perfectly respectable 1 TD, 0 INT, 19/27, 213 yards, 7.9 Y/A while he was in the game, which brings him up to 5 TDs and 1 INT on the year. While most would be content with this, freshman backup QB2 Drew Allar subbed in, and put on a show in his limited playing time, totaling 2 TDs, 0 INTs, 6/8, 88 yards, 11.0 Y/A. So, QB controversy? No, not yet anyway. It's conceivable that Clifford could get subbed out later in the season, à la Cade McNamara -> J.J. McCarthy at rival school Michigan, - but for right now, his status as the QB1 is safe, especially after a (mostly) good performance against Purdue on the road last week. Penn State looks like a perfectly strong and formidable team, however, it might only notch a meager 8-4 record purely due to circumstance. This season, Penn State must play @Auburn, @Michigan, v. OSU, v. MSU, which isn't an easy schedule for any team. Personally, I believe Penn State will finish 10-2 with a strong season from Clifford and the freshman Singleton, - which should prime Penn State to a potential NY6 bowl and a high ranking for 2023.

bretticus33 25 Penn State is 2-0 with their offense looking decent. The talent to be a consistent top 25 team is there, but James Franklin hasn't found a way to consistently put it together at Penn State. They'll have a good opportunity against Auburn this weekend.

Due_Connection179 14 Every single season I love Penn State, and every single season I get let down by a close loss to tOSU or a key injury. Underrated win at Purdue then a win over Ohio this week. At Auburn this Saturday should be a good game.
dusklord1 14 I'm less sold on everyone below Penn State, so I guess they get #14?

PSUMediaPA 19 I'm starting to see the run game doing better for the Lions and they have two very good back-up QBs for Clifford. The Lions look to be back to the 2019 form with a decent run game. They move up 5 spots.
