Penn State once again struggled in a loss last week. The Nittany Lions played an extremely ugly game and ultimately fell 20-19 to the Maryland Terrapins. Despite being favored, Penn State lacked any rhythm on offense and was unable to hold onto a lead late in the fourth quarter.

The Nittany Lions have now lost four games in a row. Things in Happy Valley have quickly unraveled after starting with victories in the first four games. The offensive line is in shambles and there doesn’t seem to be anyone who can consistently punt the ball over 30 yards. Head coach James Franklin has a lot of things to work on if this team hopes to finish the season on a successful note.
