Penn State linebacker Manny Bowen off the team

Penn State linebacker Manny Bowen off the team”

Manny Bowen isn't the only Penn State player who didn't make the trip out west with the Nittany Lions. How in the world could Barkley up his draft stock any more by returning to Penn State for the 2018 season?

That's the message new Penn State offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne offered regarding what the plan will be for the Nittany Lion offense heading into the Fiesta Bowl.

Penn State: Chambers' teams have usually made measurable improvements during the non-conference slate where Penn State's coach is 58-31 in six seasons but it's the January-February stretch that's been brutal.

The common theme in all of those games?

While this is not the matchup Penn State fans may have wanted, it should still be a good game.

"We had a bad taste previous year after losing at the Rose Bowl", he said, "so we're just coming into this game just wanting to prove ourselves and having a chip on our shoulder to come out with the "W". But Carr backed his way to the hoop for a layup with three seconds left to give Penn State a 36-28 halftime lead.

Although they receive a great deal of attention for their high-octane offenses, Washington and Penn State excel defensively as well. These two players were the driving forces behind an offense that averaged 41.6 points a game in 2017.

For the first time since 2008-09, Penn State has won double-digit games in back-to-back seasons. In his case a loss to Minnesota in 1999 as the Nittany Lions sat No.2 in the nation.

While the Huskies and Nittany Lions are stronger in certain areas than others, the stats prove both teams are well-rounded and capable of winning in myriad ways. Love is considered one of the best running backs in the country along with Penn State's Saquon Barkley.

"He's very knowledgable, he understands the game", Pry said.

Barkley totaled 1,134 yards and 16 touchdowns with the Nittany Lions this season. And I think a lot of it has to do with that teams were so keyed in on him that he just couldn't get anything going, the offensive line was getting beat, and it was tough. Standout quarterback Jake Browning was also less effective this season than he was last.

The first half of the year, he's the Heisman frontrunner, he has the huge game at Iowa where he breaks a school record and has 358 all-purpose yards, and a lot of those were after contact and making people miss. The catalyst for that production is junior Myles Gaskin, who rushed for 1,000 yards in each of the last three years. He had 27 rushes for 190 yards and four scores. "Is there going to be time for growth as an offense and for coaches?" McSorley threw for 3,228 yards and 26 touchdowns, with DaeSean Hamiltion (48 catches) and tight end Mike Gesicki (51 grabs) working as the top options in a solid receiving corps.

Maybe it's because the Seahawks keep dominating the local sports-news cycle with their unpredictable performances on the field and weird behavior off it - Earl Thomas straying into the opponents locker room and lobbying for future employment after his team's 21-12 victory: What was that about? - but I'm not detecting much Fiesta Bowl buzz this week.
