Penn State's James Franklin trashes Pittsburgh after win

Todd Blackledge sneaks across the goal line to score the game-tying touchdown in Penn State’s eventual 48-14 win at No. 1 Pittsburgh on Nov. 28 1981 one of the rivalry’s most memorable games

The Penn State Nittany Lions play the Pittsburgh Panthers in one of the college football games on Saturday, start time at 3:30 PM ET, at Beaver Stadium, Pennsylvania.

The showdown resumed last season after more than two decades, and handed Penn State a 42-39 defeat that ultimately kept the Lions out of the NCAA Playoffs.

Penn State faces Georgia State next week before a three-game Big Ten stretch against Iowa, Indiana and Northwestern. "This was just like beating Akron for us".

The number of times Franklin used the words "rival" or "rivalry" equaled the number of points Penn State allowed in an opening win over Akron. All thanks to Jester Weah who converted an 11-yard touchdown pass in the overtime to give Pitt the lead.

And at the mic stand, unprompted, the program's head football coach says that beating Pitt is just another week.

Quarterback Max Browne - former USC starter - got Hall the ball right behind the end zone, and Penn State was ready.

It's why 109,898 fans showed up Saturday to form the seventh-largest crowd at Beaver Stadium, and why social media lit up with enough glee to poke at the emotions of the Nittany Lions after Pitt's victory a year ago.

Yet Wright played pretty well in Nelson's place down the stretch last season, and there's something to be said, in offensive line play, for getting five guys out there and having them gel together.

These days, the roar is real at Beaver Stadium, where Penn State has resurrected itself in the post-Joe Paterno era.

"I think with how past year ended, I think that was kind of playing a lot into it", McSorley said.

James Franklin likes to preach to his team that no win is more significant than any other.

"People kind of keep asking me about this game", Franklin said.

McSorley finished 15-for-28 for 164 yards, three touchdowns and one interception, but completed just six passes to receivers. It's what happens when you get too cute. It was telling for the Panthers and Narduzzi, who often points out that teams make their biggest strides between Week 1 and Week 2. Running back Saquon Barkley looked unstoppable showing off his breakaway speed and ability to break tackles as he racked up 226 total yards.

"The defence is tremendous - that's why we are what we are", Barkley told ABC sideline reporter Holly Rowe post-game.
