Penn State Nittany Lions Football Details
2016 was a banner year for Penn State football, as the Nittany Lions won nine straight games to end the regular season, appeared in the Rose Bowl and played some of the season’s most exciting games along the way. A blocked field goal returned for a touchdown gave PSU a stunning upset victory over No. 2 Ohio State in October, and the Lions came back from a 14-point halftime deficit to take down Wisconsin 38-31 in the Big Ten championship game. And while they lost to USC in the Rose Bowl, the riveting 52-49 loss announced to the world that Penn State had reclaimed its spot among the college football elite. That remains the case in 2017, as the Nittany Lions return a pair of Heisman Trophy contenders in quarterback Trace McSorley and running back Saquon Barkley. Each is arguably the best at his respective position in the Big Ten, and opposing defensive coordinators will be giving themselves migraines trying to contain the duo.
An institution in Happy Valley since 1887, Penn State’s football team played as an Independent for over a century before joining the Big Ten in 1992. The move came soon after the program won its two national titles to date in 1982 and 1986. It only took the Nittany Lions two years to win their first conference title in 1994, and they have won three more since. They play their home games on campus at Beaver Stadium, which is the third largest stadium in the world with a seating capacity of 106,572.
