Spartans hoping to upset Penn State in season finaleBy Darlene Powers Nov 27, 2016
"But I think whatever side is willing to be bolder [and] take risks has the advantage because it is so hard to methodically move the ball on either team".
Penn State: James Franklin, third season, 47-29 overall, 23-14 at Penn State; Michigan State: Mark Dantonio, 108-58 record overall, 90-41 at Michigan State.
Ohio State and Penn State are setting up for quite the potential problem for the College Football Playoff selection committee.
"I thought this is another rough and tumble Penn State season, and it was sad and as the season wore on, it was more and more inspiring, and it meant so much to our community and to our family", Walsh said.
With Penn State headed to Indianapolis this weekend for the Big Ten Championship game, it seems unlikely that Barkley's status will be revealed before then. "Obviously, there's still work that needs to be done".
With moving parts and some potential iffy weather - though surely better than last week at Rutgers - today is an excellent test of the Nittany Lions' mental toughness as they attempt to send their small senior class out on a high note and finish the 2016 home regular season unbeaten.
7 Nittany Lions needed an Ohio State win over Michigan and their own win over Michigan State to take the Big Ten East title through their head-to-head tiebreaker over the Buckeyes.

The feel of the show was mainly due to the creative minds of its creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino. There will be four episodes lasting 90 minutes each.
First is health. They played three games in September without Cabinda and two more without him and the cerebral strongside linebacker Brandon Bell, decimating the linebacking corps. Tyler O'Connor is looking to avoid another mediocre performance under center and surpass 2,000 yards passing in his final MSU season. Colgate, which is coming off a 74-68 defeat at NJIT, is continuing its season-opening five-game road trip which concludes Saturday at Columbia. O'Connor was sacked four times. "I saw the play". They dropped a 49-10 decision at MI in late September, and they have not lost a game since.
Obviously their shutout win against last-place Rutgers, in which they held the Scarlet Knights to 149 yards of offense, probably skewed their defense's improvements. The Spartans dominated in their victories over Penn State in 2014 and 2015 - winning by 24 and 39 points, respectively.
For Penn State players, it's a matter of temptation. "Once again, we'll get our focus back to the task at hand, which is Michigan State".
"It was one of the games that was an annual ritual for me", Fowler said. "It was a different story in the second half. That's the kind of program you want to play for".
The Spartans now enter the offseason with another looming quarterback competition, more to replace on the offensive and (likely) defensive lines and just as many questions about who may or may not return on a coaching staff that produced one of the biggest drop-offs in recent history in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
The Nittany Lions are led by first-year starting quarterback Trace McSorley who has been impressive under center.
The Spartans never got into the red zone after Geiger's final field goal, managed just 87 yards in the second half, lost a fumble and allowed three sacks. The Western Michigan coach could end up in West Lafayette, Indiana, but no deal is being struck before the unbeaten Broncos play the MAC title game. Moorhead's playcalling, coupled with the Nittany Lions' ability to execute, generated a masterful touchdown drive before halftime.
