New offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead has brought a lot of excitement to Happy Valley with his no-huddle, up-tempo offense. There have been some bumps in the road getting started, but fans have to be encouraged with the numbers the unit has put up thus far.
For all the production being put up on offense, it’s been the defense that’s really struggled so far. The Nittany Lions are attempting to replace three starters on the defensive line, and it hasn’t gone as planned so far. The unit will look to step it up this week and make up for the way they were gashed on the ground last week.
As for the Owls, they are coming off a win last week over Stony Book, but lost big to Army in Week 1.
Kickoff for Saturday’s game at Beaver Stadium is set for noon.
If you’re not able to make it to the game, be sure to tune into the regional broadcast on the Big Ten Network. Eric Collins and former Minnesota head coach Glenn Mason will be on the call.
