as Penn State:

    New Tennessee Volunteers head coach Josh Heupel announced he has named Penn State’s Tim Banks the new Vols defensive coordinator. Tennessee football has officially entered the Josh Heupel era in Knoxville and the former UCF leader’s coaching staff is starting to round out. Though he himself has been met with mixed reviews, Heupel has been tasked with turning the Volunteers’ culture and program around after Jeremy Pruitt effectively set them back. On Monday evening, the program announced that Tim Banks had been named its new defensive coordinator. “Tim brings great energy, passion and experience to the Tennessee football family,” Heupel said. “His defenses are known for their aggressive style, as well as their multiple coverages and fronts. He’s coached in big games and has a proven track record of success on the field and in recruiting. I know our student-athletes are going to enjoy playing for him. We are fortunate...
            by Benjamin Zeisloft  Antony Blinken — former Vice President Joe Biden’s choice to become Secretary of State if he is inaugurated president in January — was the director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, which recently faced criticism for accepting $22 million in “anonymous” funds originating in China. The Biden Center, which the University of Pennsylvania officially launched in February 2018, “engages Penn’s students and partners with its faculty and global centers to convene world leaders, develop and advance smart policy, and strengthen the national debate for continued American global leadership in the 21st century.” It is located in Washington, D.C. Blinken worked as the center’s managing director until 2019 when he began serving as a foreign policy adviser for the Biden presidential campaign. In May 2020, Campus Reform reported on allegations from the National Legal and Policy Center, which said that the University of...
    Big Ten football has a new jester as Penn State continues to make a mockery of the conference. For years since entering the conference, Rutgers has been the laughingstock of Big Ten football. However, in 2020, we may have a contender for the throne as Penn State’s program, led by James Franklin, headlines a team under fire.
    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State and Maryland share a long, one-sided history. The Terrapins would probably like to forget the most recent meetings. The Nittany Lions have won 40 of 43 games in the series and the last three by a combined score of 163-6. This time, Penn State just wants to avoid an 0-3 start for the first time since 2001 when the teams meet Saturday at Beaver Stadium. “The last thing you want to do is be predictable against a talented opponent,” Penn State coach James Franklin said. But that’s what he feels has happened over the first two games where Penn State has struggled to run the ball consistently and hasn’t contained a pair of shifty, playmaking quarterbacks. Now the Nittany Lions will need to deal with Taulia Tagovailoa, who’s coming off one of the best performances by a Maryland quarterback. Tagovailoa completed 74% of...
    Penn State trailed Ohio State by a touchdown in the first quarter and faced a routine fourth-and-2 from its 45. Instead of punting, however, Nittany Lions coach James Franklin opted to go for it. Sean Clifford was flushed from the pocket and threw a pass into the ground, the Buckeyes took over and promptly scored a second touchdown on the ensuing possession. It wasn’t too early to call “game,” but the sequence set the tone for the inevitable result: No. 3 Ohio State beat No. 18 Penn State 38-25 at Beaver Stadium on Saturday to take control of the Big Ten East race. It might not be too early to call “game” on that. CFP PICTURE FOR WEEK 10: Four in, four out heading into November No. 17 Indiana is the only other unbeaten team in the division after two weeks, and the Hoosiers haven’t beaten Ohio State (2-0,...
    Ohio State handled Penn State and it doesn’t look like anyone else will challenge them for the Big Ten Championship. Penn State was no match for Ohio State on Saturday night as the Buckeyes prevailed 38-25 at Beaver Stadium. Finding someone in the Big Ten who could be is becoming more and more of a challenge. At this rate, the Buckeyes will walk to a fourth-straight Big Ten title.Ohio State has essentially no competition for the Big Ten titleThe only undefeated teams left in the Big Ten include Indiana, Purdue, Wisconsin and Northwestern. Wisconsin is the only real contender, but they’ve already had to cancel a game because of the COVID-19 outbreak in their program. Even if they are able to play next week, they’re probably going to have to do so without their star freshman quarterback because of coronavirus protocols. Moreover, they won’t face the Badgers, or Purdue or...
    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State expected some early growing pains after installing a mostly new offense in a socially distanced offseason. The Nittany Lions never thought they’d translate into so many mistakes and an overtime loss to an unranked opponent. Yet there they were, trudging off the field in stunned silence after falling to Indiana in overtime last weekend. The goal now? Not to let those mistakes snowball against what could be the best team that No. 18 Penn State (0-1, 0-1 Big Ten) plays all season when third-ranked Ohio State (1-0, 1-0) visits Beaver Stadium on Saturday. “It’s a big week and everyone knows what’s at stake,” tight end Pat Freiermuth said. A loss would virtually eliminate any shot the Nittany Lions have at winning the Big Ten Conference, meaning they need to clean up the turnovers, penalties and near-misses that plagued them against the upstart Hoosiers....
    Todd Gurley didn’t want to score a touchdown. Just like Penn State on Saturday, Gurley realized that fact just a split-second too late. And just like with the Nittany Lions, scoring a touchdown cost the Falcons a potential win.  On first-and-goal at the Lions’ 10-yard line with less than two minutes to play Sunday, Gurley took a carry up the middle and broke a tackle. The Falcons trailed by two points and had the potential to set up a game-winning field goal with no time remaining. Instead, Gurley’s momentum from the broken tackle overcame his last-second realization that he should go down shy of the end zone. The result: A Gurley touchdown and a 22-16 Falcons lead, but an opportunity for the Lions to get the ball back. MORE: Why do the Falcons keep blowing leads? Detroit started its final drive from its own 25 with 1:04 on the clock. Matthew...
    UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (CBS) — Students are back on campus with classes resuming today at Penn State. The university will be conducting random testing for COVID-19 and has taken a number of precautions to keep the virus from spreading. Penn State students are being asked to pay attention to their noses. Not being able to smell is a symptom of COVID-19. One professor is planning on sending scratch-and-sniff postcards to students and there will be flower arrangements around campus. Fighting the coronavirus could be all about smelling the roses. “Mask up or pack up” —  that is the new motto for students returning to campus at Penn State. In addition to the standard coronavirus safety precautions, students are being advised to monitor their sense of smell. “Smell is actually more predictive of COVID infection than any of the other symptoms,” said Dr. Pamela Dalton. Dr. Dalton is with the Monell Center...
    Penn State football coach James Franklin isn’t happy with the Big 10. The Big 10 decided to cancel the football season during the coronavirus pandemic, and it has been utter chaos ever since. Franklin has now joined those speaking out, and it sounds like he wasn’t given much information at all.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS/AP) — As Pennsylvania approached 100,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus on Friday, several professional, semi-professional, amateur and college sports teams have submitted plans to the state Department of Health to have fans in the stands, the agency said. The Wolf administration declined to reveal which organizations, teams or colleges have submitted plans, or whether it has approved any. But it said it continues to discourage spectators or fans from attending games to prevent transmission of the virus. Professional and college sports remain subject to Pennsylvania’s state-ordered limit of fewer than 250 people on site for games and practices, effectively meaning that Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers and Penn State football games cannot have fans in the stands. However, the Health Department said “a number” of teams had submitted plans to the agency under a provision of its health orders that allow them get approval to exceed that limit....
