Oct. 12: Let’s dance! Football players show off their dance moves

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: 7:40 p.m.

**One of the nation’s top JUCO basketball players has Penn State listed in his final 10. He is set to announce his decision Oct. 18. Some tough competition here for PSU to compete with.

Update: 5:55 p.m.

**This is pretty sweet! Check out who’s got the moves on the football team.

Update: 2:50 p.m.

**Penn State has given an offer to long snapper Tyler Duzansky from Illinois. He’s rated the No. 11 long snapper in the country by Rubio Long Snapping.

**We are now less than two weeks away from Penn State’s season opener at Indiana, and we still don’t know if it will be played on Friday, Oct. 23 or Saturday, Oct. 24.

We should find that out today. Actually, we need to find that out today, especially if the game is going to be on a Friday so that both teams know exactly what they’ll need to be doing to prepare.

It would make a lot of sense for the PSU game to be on Friday night. Below is the Big Ten’s opening-week schedule, and having a national brand and top 10 team play on a Friday night would be good exposure for the Lions, Indiana and the league.

If the Big Ten is going to put any of these games on the Friday night, the PSU contest might make the most sense.

-Nebraska at Ohio State
-Michigan at Minnesota
-Penn State at Indiana
-Iowa at Purdue
-Illinois at Wisconsin
-Rutgers at Michigan State
-Maryland at Northwestern

**Can you believe it’s been 41 years since the Steelers started a season 4-0? That seems so strange, given how good the franchise has been for so long, but sure enough, that is indeed the case.
