Nittany Lions Sluggish but Still Get the Win

Greg LeisterContributor IOctober 5, 2008

Here we are—half way through the 2008 College Football Season and it appears Penn State is back.

I hear the skeptics saying that they haven't played anyone on the road. Well, that is about to change.

Three of the next four games are on the road, and in very hostile environments to top it off.

This week was a sluggish win, but it was still a W, and it's very big for the team to go on the road in the Big Ten and get a win.

No matter how "ugly" it may have looked, they moved the ball when they wanted to.

There was a footing issue on the field for both teams. I believe the Nittany Lions stumbled at least eight or nine times, causing the drives to stop. This could very easily have been 45-6.

They will look to regroup for next week when they go primetime to Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin to take on the Badgers.

The Badgers are coming off a loss to Ohio State in a very well played game. Neither team has anything to hang their heads about.

Where can I comment?
