Countdown to Kickoff


Grading the Lions – Wisconsin Badgers

After the Michigan drubbing, the Nittany Lions showed their fortitude against an underachieving Wisconsin Badgers team. See how we graded them this week!

Wisconsin Preview

It’s amazing how similar this season has turned out for the Wisconsin Badgers and Penn State Nittany Lions, given the momentum that each team had to start the year. A returning senior quarterback, an elite running back, and an 11+ win, top-10 finish (complete with a...

Grading the Lions – Michigan Wolverines

Just as it seemed the Nittany Lions had figured out how to close a game, they seemed to forget how to start one. In an inflection point game eerily similar to the 1997 matchup, when both teams entered the game with a chance for a big win, but at two very different...

Grading the Lions – Iowa Hawkeyes

Penn State continued its trend of making 4th quarter leads interesting with a down-to-the-wire victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes. See who stood out in our weekly grades!

Grading the Lions – Indiana Hoosiers

Penn State was barely able to snap their two-game losing streak with a sloppy win at Indiana. Our grades reflect their underwhelming performance.

Crossroads at Bloomington

A mid-season matchup with the Indiana Hoosiers looks to be a crossroads game for the 2018 Penn State Nittany Lions – very reminiscent of the 1996 season.

Grading the Lions – Michigan State

For the second time in as many years, Penn State dropped a very winnable game to the Michigan State Spartans. As usual, our grades match their effort.

Michigan State Preview

One thing is certain when the Nittany Lions face the Spartans – expect the unexpected. Check out our in-depth preview of this year’s matchup!

Grading the Lions – Ohio State Buckeyes

Yet again, Penn State came up short in a heartbreaking loss against the rival Buckeyes. See how we graded them in what may be our most anticipated Grading the Lions ever!
