  • Slow starts leave Penn State playing catch-up

    STATE COLLEGE — The second half of games belong to Penn State. Too bad for the Nittany Lions the opening 30 minutes count, too. Sluggish starts have left Penn State (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten) playing catch-up the last few weeks and in big road games.

  • Illini feeling good but face first road test in Happy Valley

  • Temple tries to end Penn St. no-sack streak

    Maligned at times by Penn State’s uneven running game, the offensive line can be proud of at least one impressive stat — the No. 23 Nittany Lions are the only team in the country that hasn’t allowed a sack.

  • Is this Temple's chance to break losing streak against Penn State

    STATE COLLEGE — If Penn State is Temple’s measuring stick, the Owls have been off by miles.
    This Pennsylvania rivalry is decidedly tilted in the Nittany Lions’ favor. Temple hasn’t beaten Penn State since World War II, and the Owls have a 27-game losing streak in the series.
