The Penn State Nittany Lions were able to overcome their beating at Ohio State by winning their second-straight overtime game last week against the Illinois Fighting Illini. Though it wasn’t pretty, a win is a win. However, this week’s game presents a tough task, as the Minnesota Golden Gophers have a record of 7-2, and Penn State has yet to win a conference road game.
This weekly feature highlights three Nittany Lions to keep an eye on in the upcoming game. Anyone could make this list, ranging from a player on a hot streak, someone making their first start or a player who needs to rebound from a poor performance.
