So Penn State is making the trip out to minneapolis this weekend after all of the hullabaloo about the baseball playoffs.
Black Shoe Diaries has a nice write up about the game.
The sentiment on the internet is, basically, that Minnesota has a young, inexperienced team and a very suspect defense. But, as always, the Lions need to be prepared to play and play the entire game. Penn State beat up on the gophers last year (and Michael Robinson's now legendary hit on the um d-back ended the kid's football career) so minne is definitely not looking past the Lions.
There are still key injuries on the PSU offensive line - hopefully the offense can pick up where they left off in the second half of the northwestern game - and, throw the ball to Butler!
The D needs to be tough - and create turnovers. Special teams, as always are important - Kelly needs to get all the confidence he can.
Game time is 12pm(EST) - which isn't always a great start time for PSU and the first "early" game of the season - ESPN is broadcasting the game regionally - so check your local listings. In Philly they're airing the game on My Phl (Channel 17).
2 the Lion! Let's go State!
