In Tuesday’s Penn State news, linebacker Mike Hull has been honored by being named to the preseason watch list for the Butkus Award, given to the nation’s top linebacker. Also, new defensive tackle and junior college transfer Tarow Barney is previewed.
Elsewhere, PennLive outlines five ways that the Nittany Lions can win against Ohio State despite having a nine percent chance to beat the Buckeyes. Former Penn State quarterback and top recruit Rob Bolden is transferring for the second time, leaving LSU. Finally, Black Shoe Diaries has bad news for Michigan State and a possible major uproar has been avoided as James Franklin says the picture of a helmet with numbers on it is simply for decoration and that he is not making a major uniform change.
