Penn State's first season under Bill O'Brien has been far from easy.
After an opening loss to Ohio University and a Week 2 loss to Virginia, the season began looking bleak for the Nittany Lions.
But somehow O'Brien's team turned it around.
Penn State is on a three-game winning streak, most recently taking down Big Ten opponent Illinois in a 35-7 win.
Many people said that, after everything that had happened leading up to this season, the Lions would struggle. Some even went as far as saying Penn State could win only one game.
In the first month of season the Nittany Lions have surprised all of college football, and are only one field goal kick away from a 4-1 record.
So, what are the biggest surprises that Penn State has delivered through the first month of the season?
