Hi, what are you looking for?

2-Minute Morning

We’ll start to feel better about PSU football team this week. Here’s why

Yes, the Nittany Lions are 0-2. Yes, they’ve already suffered a bad loss to Indiana, plus a second loss in the biggest game of the year against Ohio State. And yes, the team’s primary goals are already gone, that being a Big Ten championship and College Football Playoff appearance.

But step back from the ledge, PSU fans, because the season is far from over.

OK, so what is there to feel good about?

Check out Cory Giger’s thoughts to find out.
