Penn State vs. Michigan – October 18, 2008

It had been 12 seasons since the Lions had beat Michigan, including more than a couple heartbreakers under, shall we say, controversial circumstances. This was far from the Wolverine’s most powerful team, but they did race out to a 17-7 lead, and lead 17-14 at halftime. However, as the sun set on the homecoming crowd, the PSU offense found its groove, and the defense figured out Rich Rod’s spread offense. By the time it was done, the Lions had rattled off 39 unanswered points for a 46-17 win. The Lions have have of course beaten better teams in bigger games, but on that night, they finally vanquished a 12 year old demon.

    PSU Notre Dame 2007 has to be included ahead of both Michigan games!

    Terrible list… though 2005 OSU and 2001 UM games should be on there… though the UM game wasn’t a good game. 2002 LJ2K MSU game was a great one. So was the 2002 Iowa game… everyone was leaving but my siblings and I were telling everyone to stay because we knew PSU would comeback. Unfortunately it did not result in win, but it showed resilience. 1995 Snow Bowl and having to park in Boalsburg and get bussed in wss great. So was 1993 Minnesota game and 1994 Michigan State Rose Bowl clincher.

    What about 1982 Nebraska and 1983 WVU (Hostetter’s 1st game at PSU after leaving PSU) and many others that are better games than the listed ones.

      I suggest reading the opening. These are the games I was at and remember for a myriad of reasons.
