Oct. 10: PSU AD Barbour receives prestigious honor from SI

Welcome to our daily Nittany Notebook. This post will be updated frequently throughout the day with news, notes and sometimes entertaining info. So be sure to check back often to stay on top of everything that’s going on with Penn State football and athletics, plus other sports of interest in central PA.

Update: 7 p.m.

**An impressive honor for Penn State athletic director Sandy Barbour, being named one of the most influential women in sports by Sports Illustrated.

Barbour truly has done an exceptional job at Penn State under tough circumstances. She has been a tremendous leader for the athletic department and a terrific representative of Penn State.


Update: 3:30 p.m.

Another team ranked ahead of Penn State lost today, so the Lions are likely to jump up another spot in the polls Sunday.

Florida lost at Texas A&M on a last-second field goal, 41-38. The Gators are No. 3 in the coaches poll and No. 4 in the AP poll.

Penn State is No. 8 in the coaches poll and No. 9 in the AP poll, so the Lions should be on the rise.

Update: 11 a.m.
