Lasching Out Podcast Ep. 32: It’s White Out Week

The Nittany Lions won their Big Ten opener on Saturday against the Fighting Illini by a final score of 30 – 13.

The offense extended their scoring 30 or more points streak to 10 straight games, the longest in the FBS according to ESPN, but struggled at times. Play calling and the absence of Trey Wallace certainly didn’t help.

Luckily, the defense was ready to play. They forced 3 first quarter turnovers and 5 total in the game. Luke Altmyer’s day at the office was a long one and quite one dimensional as the Penn State front was able to hold the Illini offense to a mere 62 yards, a considerable improvement compared to the West Virginia game.

Despite the struggles on offense, this Nittany Lion squad has nothing to worry about as other teams around the country struggled on Saturday too. Maybe Pat Narduzzi’s squad could benefit from a “one-word offense,” after his team put up only 6 points in their Backyard Brawl defeat against the aforementioned Mountaineer squad.

Join Jarrod, Joe, and I as we discuss Penn State’s latest game and a look around the rest of college football’s week 3 on the Lasching Out Podcast. We thank you always for listening!
