WATCH: Drew Allar, PSU Looking to Keep ‘Growth Mindset’ After Convincing Win

Penn State quarterback Drew Allar during warmups before the Nittany Lions matchup against the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Drew Allar has been a college football starting quarterback for four games.

Of those four, three have been at home.

Two of those home games have been among the four highest-attended games in Beaver Stadium history.

That’s pretty cool stuff, and one could argue that Allar, a former five-star recruit, is part of what draws people to Beaver Stadium.

But Allar feels people are there to see Penn State, just him.

“I don’t think it’s because I’m playing or anything like that,” Allar told reporters after the game. “I think it’s because of the team we have and the type of players, the type of coaches we have on this team. Obviously, we’ve been doing a good job so far this season, playing well and finding different ways to win each week. But I think we can’t let that distract us from the fact that we have to do it every day in practice. We have to come in with a growth mindset of ‘work every day to improve on things that we can improve on,’ and just attack every day like it’s our last day out there. I think that’s the biggest thing. We can’t have a bad week of practice and then go out and play well on Saturdays. We have to put a full week together.”
