Thursday’s Penn State news has a lot of different preview pieces about the upcoming season.

Perhaps the strangest piece of news is the fact that the Nittany Lions’ game gainst UCF in Ireland could end up being canceled due to a volcano. Yep, you read that right. There’s a chance that an erupting volcano in Iceland could affect travel to Ireland. If the game does take place as planned, PennLive takes a look at the details of Penn State’s road trip across the pond, considering it happens. In more normal football news, head coach James Franklin dishes on his offensive line and on the freshmen he’s impressed with. Elsewhere, cornerback Trevor Willimas is profiled, the battle for the other cornerback spot is detailed, and there’s a preview of the Indiana Hoosiers.
