Bill O’Brien showed on Saturday why the Penn State football program is going in a new direction.
After a win against Navy, it was still hard to tell whether or not O’Brien’s team would be able to turn things around. In their two games before Navy, the Nittany Lions looked young and somewhat sloppy.
But Penn State’s game against Temple showed a team that has grown. With 100 yards total in penalties, discipline seemed like Penn State’s biggest opponent on Saturday.
The Lions defense was able to bend but not break, giving up only two field goals much of the game.
Penn State’s win Saturday seemed bigger than just a nonconference game.
O’Brien’s team outplayed Temple, and the Nittany Lions weren’t the only ones to come out of yesterday with a win.
