**Recalling the ONE time Indiana beat Penn State, out of 23 tries in the all-time series.
@si_ncaafb Indiana has an almost-embarrassing 1-22 record all-time against Penn State, but here's the great story on the ONE! It was a special day when the Hoosiers finally did it! Nice job by Dylan Wallace of @HoosiersNowSI on this one. https://t.co/1Qh4RUprad

I made the decision to ignore Pitt football today and celebrate my fifth wedding anniversary. I don't regret that choice, because it reminds me of the best decision I ever made, and that was asking @DrKittridgeDerm to marry me. Best five years of my life and I'm beyond grateful. pic.twitter.com/Mkuenmu2gI

**Totally agree with this.
"That might be the biggest factor in the entire Big Ten schedule is the fact that Ohio State doesn’t have to deal with the traditional White Out." pic.twitter.com/meWQwPgEL7

**Of course college coaches lie about injuries. Because they can. Here’s proof.
Proof that college football coaches just flat out lie about this stuff.
No reason for them to be honest, really. Not without the NFL rules regarding injury reporting. https://t.co/7rluBCbIsj

**Well, we’re down to one more week until Penn State opens its season at Indiana. Cory Giger will be there in Bloomington next weekend to provide you with great coverage from the scene, including stories, videos and analysis.
We’ve got one more Saturday of college football until then, though, and there’s a huge game tonight when Georgia visits Alabama with major national implications.
